Steve Adams
Mixed Media

Steve & Cynthia Adams moved to Naples, FL from Atlanta, GA in 1997.  Inspired by the climate and natural beauty of the area, their work has evolved into colorful, abstract mixed-media paintings that inspire and energize any interior space.


As abstract painters, a blank canvas is the start of an exciting journey with an unknown outcome. Marks using oil pastels begin the process, with layers of acrylic to follow.  Alcohols and ink may be applied next to add depth, shape and texture.  Final touches are deliberately placed until achieving that balance of active and quiet areas, energetic color and meandering line.  The uncertainty of the outcome keeps the desire and motivation to paint fresh and inspiring every day they show up at their studio.  When their finished creations invite viewers to linger for awhile in a state of contemplation they know they have achieved their goal.
