Dorothy (D.Hunter) Adams, born 1942 in Chatham and now living in London, Ontario belongs to the post Matthew Kousal generation of painters. Peter Etril Snyder, O.J. Coghlin, Roger Witmer, Walter Campbell, Reginald Selfe and Dorothy Hunter are all painters who have struck gold painting what Kousal so broadly started.
Each one of these painters have struck out from Kousal's base of realistic, emotionally charged landscapes and branched off into the wonderful worlds of the Mennonites, historic buildings, romantic landscapes and in Dorothy's case a delicate unveiling of nature rivaled only by O. J. Coghlin.
Her's is a style that is realistic but with a captivating glimpse into her sense of wonder. This piece is almost a faery tale, otherworldly and accessible. I almost feel I'm on tip-toes looking over her shoulders, holding my breath. Her paintings are so quiet. Lights and shadows so subtle it's hard to pull away from the painting.
She is a listed Canadian painter represented by the National Gallery of Canada. She has had many exhibitions, awards and one woman shows throughout the area.
