Oil & Acrylic Painter
For Ada, making art is an "aspiration from my youth achieved."
A prolific artist, she paints Southwest and Northwest landscapes, seascapes of the Pacific Northwest, florals and portraits. She paints in acrylic or oil on canvas or panel board. Her technic is traditional and her style is a combination of Realism and Impression.
Although Ada was active in a number of art associations in Oregon and Arizona and attended workshops, and local classes, her formal training was at Kachina School of Art in Phoenix, Arizona, where she completed a two-year Master Artist Painting course. She also studied portraiture from the renown Muralist and Portrait Artist Jay Datus, Founder of the school.
Her favorite painting is "Behold The Lamb" which was inspired in church by the choir singing an Easter cantata. It is found on the page BEHOLD THE LAMB.
