Adam Trest is a watercolorist based in Laurel, Mississippi. He attended Mississippi State University where he received a Bachelors in Fine Art with an emphasis in Painting as well as a Minor in Architectural Design. The combination of architectural and fine art studies created a style that is not only structured and technically driven, but balanced with painterly accidents that can only come from the watercolor medium. Trest learned to embrace the bleeds, splatters, and drips and use them to incorporate a casual elegance to the world of cartography and pattern making. He chooses to use the beautiful transparencies of watercolor washes to capture the Treasured Places hidden within our great state. He is often inspired by the native flora and fauna as well as the Historical Districts around his home state of Mississippi. He currently lives in Ellisville, MS with his wife Lily, his beautiful daughter Fincher Lee, and their two dogs.
