John  Adams  Design
John Adams began studying art formally at age 12 and enjoyed painting seascapes and mountains which continue to provide inspiration for his work. He graduated from Stetson University in Florida with a BA in studio arts. After that he worked his way west to Colorado, working as a carpenter, river guide, screen-printer and watercolorist. Since settling in the Seattle area in 1985 he has pursued an independent career in the arts. John is a signature member of both the National and Northwest Watercolor Societies. 
To complement his work as a watercolorist he completed an AAS at Seattle Central College in Graphic Design and has worked in graphic design along with painting and teaching weekly watercolor classes since 1998.

"John Adams is a 
wonderful instructor! 
Thorough in his explanations 
and demonstrations plus 
encouraging and constructive 
to individual students. 
Most of all, he is kind and 
accessible; John has been 
inspirational, as well as, 
helping us learn and 
facilitate techniques."
