About Ren Adams
I've been doing artwork my entire life (even scribbled in my own baby book) and for me, it's more than a "hobby" or "job" it's a state of mind and a fulfilling pathway. I can't NOT do it. I simply must. If I'm not drawing, painting, or otherwise expressing myself (however badly), I'm not in harmony with everything around me.
Art is a sensation, a sense of humor, a sense of elation, a tantalizing window... it's pure energy, pure thought, pure darkness, and pure light.
I explore themes, people, and places that intrigue me...
I'm also a Taoist and a lot of my artwork reflects my spiritual pathway (the art of compassion, simplicity, and patience). I practice Qi Gong meditation and enjoy artists who aren't afraid to be themselves.
To click onto her shop and browse around there is such an atmosphere of peace and serenity. There are so many pieces I would LOVE to have in my home. You can look at this piece and imagine your sitting on this rock listening to the pipe and feeling the crisp mountain spring breeze and instantly calming sensation comes over you.
Ren Adams is an amazing painter her works can take you away! Reading her profile and discovering how she creates these amazing works almost makes you feel as rested and relaxed as she is when she paints them.
