Barbara Stevens Adams’ involvement with art began in 1987 at Creative Arts workshop in New Haven, Connecticut. She moved to New Hampshire in 1990 and pursued her art studies in Portsmouth. The ensuing process has taken her to her current passion with pastels and oils.

Barbara is a founding member and the past president of the Pastel Society of New Hampshire, a juried member of the New Hampshire Art Association, a signature member of Pastel Painters of Maine, and a member of the Seacoast Art Association, the Newburyport Art Association, and the Kittery Art Association. Her paintings have been accepted into many juried shows locally, nationally, and internationally. Her work can currently be seen at the Mast Cove Gallery in Kennebunkport, Maine, Newburyport Art Association, the New Hampshire Art Association’s Lincoln Levy Gallery in Portsmouth, and the Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts in Frederiksted, St. Croix.

The focus of Barbara’s art is frequently themes from her “en plein air” painting excursions, her international travels, and her enjoyment of the history and many moods of the New England Coast and U.S. Virgin Islands.

Although no longer practicing in her profession as a psychotherapist, Barbara has continued to be an active supporter of health, art, and non-profits in her community. She supports ,through her art, Portsmouth Music and Art, New Hampshire Public Television, and the Wentworth Lear Historic Houses.

Barbara’s studio and residence are in Portsmouth.
