Jen's profound passion for the African bush and its extraordinary wildlife has become a wellspring of inspiration. Her countless safari experiences have allowed her to capture truly astonishing moments, many of which have found their place in her remarkable wildlife art. Among these, a regal lion takes the spotlight, seemingly posing for the camera, embodying the serene ambiance of the bushveld.

In her captivating depictions, Jen skillfully portrays women and children navigating the expansive, arid, and radiant landscapes. These artworks encapsulate the unblemished innocence of rural Africa, a region that, despite its arid and occasionally barren appearance, exudes emotional and spiritual richness. It's a place of diverse cultures, rural communities, and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets that paint the skies with fiery hues.

Within her African abstract paintings, the women often wear a delicate, flowing white fabric that gracefully drapes over their clothing. This fabric serves as a symbol of the emotional and spiritual fortitude these women possess in the face of extreme poverty and adversity in their modest lives. Set against the backdrop of the sun-scorched earth, these silhouettes ignite the viewer's imagination, filling the space with positive energy and serenity. They extend a warm and spontaneous invitation to dream, to listen in silent contemplation, and to be swept away by the prevailing mood, where the lion's regal presence mirrors the resilience of rural Africa.

About Artist

To admire Jen Adam's warm and soulful ethnic artworks is to experience a spiritual journey into Africa. Her art depicts women and children walking through vast, arid, glowing landscapes. It captures rural Africa: dry, hot, sometimes barren land that is nevertheless emotionally and spiritually rich, with its diverse people and cultures and magnificent, fiery sunrises and sunsets.

Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 1956, Adam grew up in the sub-tropical climes outside Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. From 1985 to 2007, she worked as a ceramist artist, making and painting on ceramics and teaching aspiring ceramists while exhibiting and selling her work.

"With encouragement from my husband, Bill, and an artist friend, Natasha Barnes, I started painting on canvas," she says. "I mostly tell the story of the African women and their children around me because of my huge admiration. The rural women I paint generally raise their children on their own without much help from the fathers, who venture off to the cities to make money. These women have much adversity and do a remarkable job."

Working primarily in thick acrylics and mixed mediums, including charcoal, chalk, and watercolors. Adam's art soon found an audience. "I think my art has a 'feel' for Africa and is painted with love. I think that's what art lovers, locally and from around the world, respond to. I was thrilled to find my paintings sold as fast as I could paint them." Adam lives in a quiet town on KwaZulu-Natal's South Coast.
