Susan Adams draws inspiration from Costa Rica’s landscape and its people, specifically within the Guanacaste province, which has been her home for over 25 years.

As an observer of daily life and culture, Susan Adams immortalises a diverse array of subjects, from cowboys and dancers to bull rings and traditional customs upheld by the eclectic spectrum of local people. Additionally, she captures the essence of Costa Rica’s natural beauty, including its beaches, animals, and tropical life.

Blending impressionism and realism, Adams creates captivating artworks predominantly with oil on canvas. Her technique is distinctive; she starts with a stucco trowel to apply the gesso, occasionally layering metallic paint before introducing oil paint.

This marlin oil painting portrays a magnificent marlin leaping out of the water, capturing the energy and vigour of the fish amidst the splashes of the ocean. Adams brings to life the dynamic scene, showcasing the abundant life in Costa Rica’s waters. The use of soft blue tones adds to the serene atmosphere, enveloping the viewer in the tranquil beauty of the underwater world depicted in her marlin oil painting
