Trisha was born and raised in California, but moved to Virginia after college where she lives today. After working in newspaper advertising, she opened a graphic design business which she ran for more than a dozen years.
In 2001, Trisha began painting in earnest and by 2004 she was painting fulltime.
Trisha's work has been profiled in Elan Magazine and American Art Collector. Her painting, “Rockland Farm,” was the first painting purchased for the town of Leesburg’s permanent art collection. Other collections holding Adams' work are the Virginia State Senate, the Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner and the Virginia Medical Center.
