Art & Wall Decor by Adrienne Yorinks seen at New Haven Free Public Library, New Haven - Where The Wild Things Are

Where The Wild Things Are

Adrienne Yorinks' "Where The Wild Things Are" (1998) features characters from the beloved Maurice Sendak book of the same name, which has been popular since its publication in 1963.

Yorinks "paints" with fabrics, and her textile art, revealing her unique artistry and vision, has been exhibited throughout the world. She is perhaps best known for her one-of-a-kind commissions. Adrienne creates unique memory quilts using her client's photographs and family mementos to commemorate special occasions.
