Artist
Sally Adams Shelby Township, Michigan

Sally Adams recalls the moment she became a painter at the age of four; her love for art is innate and lifelong. Her intention is to extract beauty from everyday life. The advice of an art teacher, “less is more,” is one of Sally’s guiding principles. Her artwork brims with intimate simplicity and childlike joy. She enjoys simplifying and sweetening compositions from nature, such as trees and birds, painting only the core components necessary to convey an emotional connection. Sally has three grown daughters who are all active artists, and they work together whenever possible. “I taught them the joy of creating art when they were young,” says Sally, “and they taught me to do what I love for a living, by their own example, in adulthood.”

    Artist Statement

    I split my time working in Sarasota, Florida, and Shelby Township, Michigan, USA. I have loved art and creating it for as long as I can remember. My favorite Christmas gift was a set of oil paints when I was 15. I still have the metal case and use some of the original brushes! After raising three beautiful daughters, a six-year diversion into ceramic clay work, and a day job as a graphic artist, I'm now back to painting! My studio companion, Pickledog, gets me up and going every morning reminding me that a good breakfast and a daily walk (or two) with Mother Nature are essential for raising endorphins and clearing the mind to create. I find inspiration in the sights, sounds, and fragrances on these adventures. I take my camera everywhere as my paintings are directly or indirectly influenced by the pictures I take. I’m grateful everyday that I am able to spend my time doing what I love. I'm fortunate also, to have a network of supportive friends and a wonderful family.

    With all that said, I hope you find something here that moves you in a way that it originally moved me to create, or simply, you love it so much you can’t live without it!
