Her Approach

Painting has been a lifelong passion for Susan Adams. For her, it is both exciting and therapeutic to be able to capture and interpret the world around her, artistically. 

Living in New England, Susan embraces the beautiful rich colors of the ocean, beaches, landscapes, gardens and change of seasons. She finds it remarkable that the color of the paint, shadows, textures and layering techniques that painting enables can echo the complexities of nature in such unpredictable and engaging ways. 

Susan has enjoyed oil painting for the majority of her career but has also had the pleasure of creating with watercolor and pastels. The subjects vary from still life, seascapes and landscapes. Her travels have brought her all over the United States, Canada and Europe. 

Susan is a juried member at the Newburyport Art Association.
