Katie Adams is an painter from Birmingham, AL. Her work includes realistic animals painted on a slightly abstracted background. The abstraction, typically done in acrylic, may include a splatter, slash, circle or smear. Abstracting the background adds motion and interest to the animal on the overlay. The animal, always painted in oil, is painted accurately and to scale, may be offset on the canvas, to give the illusion that it is floating or flying into the piece. Katie’s goal with her work is to celebrate color and the natural world.
