Peter Adams

Painting, Booth 905

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Adams has a degree in Film Studies from Queen's University but now directs all his creative energy toward his painting practice. The Collingwood artist is primarily interested in the ever-changing human relationship with landscape and has developed his own unique and expressive approach to interpreting it.  A recipient of many awards and Ontario Arts Council Grants, he is currently inspired by recent travels in Scotland, Brazil, as well as in Ontario. Traditionally an oil painter, Adams now often integrates conte, acrylic washes, paint markers and oil sticks into his work.
