Nature inspires my work and most recently Monet's water lily paintings. The journey to my current work simply started out painting trees and clouds. As I became more confident, my pieces became more and more realistic. Today, I am on a new path of abstracting nature with the same goals of creating depth with high contrasts. Using a wax medium, I layer on color and remove, then reapply. This causes a great tension in my paintings, the same tension found in nature and in ourselves.
Adam was born and raised in Battle Creek, Michigan and attended Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. He moved to Arizona when he was 25 and worked in corporate marketing for 10 years. He occasionally was hired to do pastel pet portraits from friends and coworkers. With his PR experience he landed spots on television news morning shows with his clients and their pets. After building a reputation as a respected artist, Adam transitioned from pastel pet drawings to painting nature scenes in oil.
Adam's work has been seen in the October 2011 edition of Traditional Home Magazine, NBC's "Chicago Fire," HGTV's "Dina's Party," two episodes of HGTV's "Celebrities at Home," Bravo's "The Real Housewives of NJ", Bravo's "Tabatha's Salon Takeover," and STARZ "Boss."
