“Adriana Marchione’s work is brimming with creativity and depth of feeling. She focuses on what really matters, and compassionately and wisely embraces life in all its manifestations.”

– Alfonso Montuori, Professor of Arts and Culture


“I have worked with Adriana off and on for about 20 years. She has always provided a gentle but steady hand that has guided me toward expressing my most authentic and creative self. She has also held up a mirror that compassionately and clearly reflects back deeply held truths that though they may have been buried and temporarily obscured, are tenderly dusted off and brought back into the light. She is a visionary woman who bravely faces the unknown, courageously exploring and helping others to explore, those parts of our lives that often remain overlooked and forgotten and yet are such a crucial and essential part of who we are! If you want to live a full life, feeling deeply into the spectrum of existence, encompassing the many dimensions of our emotional, psychological and creative selves, Adriana can hold that sacred space for you, like a womb where wonderful things can be born!”

– Spring Berlandt, Educator


“Over the years I've had the privilege to learn from her as my teacher and to experience her genuine guidance, and receive profound support through private sessions. Adriana is a highly skilled professional dedicated to help people to use the arts to give voice to their experiences, and especially when it reaches spaces we feel helpless to describe such as grief, trauma or destructive behaviors. She knows how to encourage people in their own creativity and to hold space with empathy and care in a way that few people do. Adriana is the kind of person you really want to work with if you're looking for developing your creativity, if you love the arts or always wanted to try.”

- Chloé Noble, Art-Therapist, Actor


“Adriana creates a special safe space that allowed me to drop into my truth and ground as an artist with a unique voice. I felt held and nurtured by the life/art process her groups and individually. It helped me cultivate the confidence to shift what I am still shifting, away from what doesn't resonate towards what does as an artist. It helped me to see, trust and value my own artistic process.”

- Jessica-Sue Burstein, Performance Artist and Writer
