The Asheville area inspires me with breathtaking vistas and fascinating buildings. I love interpreting my surroundings in my own colorful way.
"I love sketching our favorite places while we travel and then create paintings in the studio from my quick watercolor sketches. I fell in love with the small villages and interesting buildings when we lived in Belgium and find buildings and the communities they represent fascinating. "
From iconic landmarks and tobacco barns to florals and abstracts, Bee Adams creates dynamic, colorful paintings that simultaneously tease and delight the eye. Whatever her subject, she is fearless in her interpretations. Her paintings are not careful architectural renderings, but vibrant celebrations that allow the viewer to encounter the familiar anew as it is presented in exuberant colors with masterful execution.
Prior to relocating to Asheville, Bee was active in the Denver art scene for over 40 years where she was the featured artist at one-person shows at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts as well as The National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder.
Bee also lived in Brussels and took particular joy in capturing the intricate buildings throughout Europe with quick sketches and sharing her work in several exhibitions, from which her work spread to collections worldwide.
Bee continues her love of painting, capturing the unique architecture in Asheville, where she relocated seven years ago and she has her studio.
