"Viewing her work is like being in the passenger seat next to a driver who knows how to take the road with supreme dexterity and implicit attentiveness; you feel safe at any speed," said Barry Schwabsky, Artforum.

Adams is considered one of the foremost non-objective artists working today, known for monumental paintings composed of vast areas of vibrant color within organic geometries. Though the smaller scale of the paintings in SongLines is comprised of a smaller scale of paintings, although they are filled with pulsating colors lending itself to moments of intimate contemplation. Adams' is known for her exquisite color palette that features saturated hues.

Adams has studios in both New York City and Parma, Italy. She earned degrees from Tyler School of Art, Temple University and Columbia University's School of the Arts. Recent solo exhibitions include Salon 94 in New York, Marc Jancou in Switzerland and Galerie Gris in Hudson, New York.
