Though he was born in land-locked Linton, Indiana, Loren D. Adams, Jr.s most popular subject has been the Pacific Ocean, which he first saw at age 6 when his family moved to California. Describing the sight at one which "frightened, terrified, exhilarated and thrilled" him, Adams was drawn to it when, despite studying at the California Missionary Baptist Institute of Theology, he found himself pursuing a career as an artist. For the next decade, he focused on seascapes and coastal marine landscapes in which he attempted to convey not only the majesty of the sea, but even the actual motion of the waves. Fused media on aircraft aluminum.
