GERI ADAM

Doodling and cartooning in the corners of my school books was the beginning of a passion for drawing what I saw around me.  I was inspired by an early trip to see the great art galleries of Europe and was hooked on art.

I started to experiment with paint, ink and clay.  I still find experimenting with new techniques and materials exciting.

STATEMENT

Working mainly with watercolour on paper and acrylic on canvas and mixed media, I focus on interpreting my response to nature and human character through light, colour and mood, impressionistic and lately as abstraction.  I like to paint ‘en plein air’ in order to see, feel, smell, and experience the creative process and try to pass that on to the viewer.  It is a challenge and one I enjoy.
