As a mother of two, when her children were in
school full time, Laurie Adams realized
that â€śpainting is what she needed to do for
herselfâ€ť. So she started taking classes, finally
ending up under the tutelage of renowned artists
from the Denver Art Students League.
After several years of painting passionately,
Adams has accomplished a serene and sensitive
look to her work. Her soft oil paintings often
portray figures in a romantic light. However, an
old man sitting in a hammock, while not thought
of as romantic, can be viewed as quiet and
sedate. There is a soft glow to her work as the
lighting she uses is just as important as the
Adams enjoys traveling with her family, often
to Mexico where she also looks for subject matter
with â€ścharacterâ€ť for her paintings. Once back at
the easel she paints these familiar people and
scenes in a muted palette. The result is always
lush and inviting.
As an emerging artist new to the gallery
scene, Adams work has already been well received
by both collectors and gallery owners. Her work
is represented in several galleries in her home
state of Colorado as well as several galleries
throughout the country. Her collectors find
themselves starting with one piece and almost
inevitably buying more of the captivating work.
Laurie Adams is well on her way to establishing
herself as a fine artist.
