Adele is one of the most talented and successful singers in the music industry right now. I had the privilege of seeing her perform "Someone Like You" live at the Brit Awards earlier this year and she had the entire O2 arena completely captivated by the raw, powerful emotion in her voice and lyrics.

I've been listening to her song "Set Fire to the Rain" nearly every day for the past few weeks and I still feel overwhelmed every time I hear it. Her songs always manage to tap into those feelings of desperate love and heartbreak that most of us have experienced at some point.

Even though Adele's songs tend to be quite wistful, her personality comes across in interviews as quite upbeat and bubbly. I wanted to portray both the melancholic and vivacious sides of her character in this portrait.
