Acrylic and Digital Artist of St George Utah

Wil Adams, Artist in St George Utah

Wil Adams is an artist who enjoys creating desert life and southwest vibe art using acrylic, watercolors, and digital art with his own unique distinctive designs and characteristics.

Since he lives in southern Utah, a lot of his artwork leans towards the outdoors, feathers and healing designs.

He’s always been into art and crafts his whole life, and as he has started to near retirement he wanted to reinvent himself. A few years back, he started to paint for stress relief and now it has turned into an opportunity for him to continue working in his later years. 

Wil studied visual arts in college and worked as a professional photographer for several years after college. Around 30 years ago Wil decided to make a change and pursue a career in the healing arts as a massage therapist. Through those years he was always drawn back to his passion to create visual arts as a way to relax and bring himself back to center. Some of his favorite past art mediums were photography, lapidary, silversmith and polymer clay work. These mediums also allowed him to create wonderful gifts for close friends and family, but he never really wanted to share his work beyond that point, until he discovered he loved to paint. 

He finds painting to be relaxing, it allows him to focus, yet still is able to release the creative passion that flows within him in an abstract way. He continues by saying, “It’s not about controlling every aspect of the work, it’s about laying down an idea or feeling and allowing the colors and paint to transform into a beautiful piece of artwork.”

Back when he was in high school/college, he was into graphic arts and photography. Back then there weren't computers, so he would develop, enlarge and print his own black and white photographs. Then he would take transparent oil paint and color his prints. Nowadays with computers and technology, transforming photographs is a whole new ball game. His style of art has a digital twist on photography, which he calls painted photographs.

Have a fantastic day.
