Meet the Artist: Connie Adams

A snowy scene in watercolor by Connie Adams.
"I was a doodler in school. My eighth grade teacher gave me a book on drawing, and so it began...."says Connie Adams of South Perry, Ohio.  Connie has been painting in watercolor for about 30 years. She has won numerous awards locally, including Best in Show at the Lake MetroParks Farmpark art show and at Clifton Artfest,.  She teaches art classes at the Madison, Chardon, and Kirtland senior centers. 

"I really love sharing my talent.... [And] it's the greatest high when I paint," Connie said.  Her subjects are  usually landscapes, florals, still lifes, pets, and houses -- she creates portraits of homes on commission.  When not immersed in her art, she might be found waiting tables at the Purple Bull Tavern, where she also displays and sells her art.

What inspires her? "I love the big old barns. I can be driving along and see a barn, or a flower, or the sky so perfect, I know I have to paint it. But best of all the snow and all its magic. It makes me want to run out the back door and make snow angels.... "

Selected pieces of Connie’s art will be included in the
33rd Annual Fine Art Show and Sale
from 10am to 5pm Saturday, November 10th, and from
1pm to 5pm Sunday, November 11th at East Shore Unitarian Universalist Church in Kirtland.
