Reason for feminine word ending

Hi, in “Curieuse de nature, je m'y étais aventurée !”, is “curieuse” in its feminine form (as opposed to the masculine “curieux”) because the speaker is female? Am I right in thinking that this is not influenced at all by the female word “nature”?

You're right on both counts!
