Bee Adams works from her Anglesey studio which is just a stone's throw from the waterfront. In the ever shifting light of the Menai Strait, she finds inspiration in the natural coupling of texture and colour that takes place on the wave battered shoreline. Bee trained at the Arts Educational Schools in London before going on to Goldsmiths College. After fifteen years working as a history producer, radio presenter and journalist at the BBC, she became arts editor for Coast & Country magazine and moved to North Wales to work as a full time artist. 'Our lives are transient, but the ocean remains - ceaseless - constant. We perish, leaving nothing behind to mark our passing save a jumble of evocative fragments, which are eventually reconstructed by decay and thrown up by the changing tides. In this, our detritus, I see our real colours.'
' High on a ridge, overlooking the Irish Sea, sits a ruined mansion. A myriad of secrets lie within its curtain wall.Betrayal, lost children, death by drowning.Through this series of paintings Bee Adams enters the long forgotten world which hides behind the crumbling facade of Baron Hill House. '
