Denise Van Balen-Adams

At a very young age, while getting caught red-handed drawing stick figures on the wall behind her bed, Denise Van Balen-Adams immediately knew art was her calling. Since, Denise has dedicated her life to creating art that emphasizes the beauty of Godís creations.

Denise studied at the Columbus College of Art and Design, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in Illustration and a minor in Art Therapy. Her educational experience set her foundation as a professional artist and nurtured her passion for drawing, painting, illustration, and graphic design. She has taught art to students of all ages and levels since 1987, in both academic and private settings.

Today, Denise's work is a dynamic mix of styles, ranging from sleek and contemporary to weathered and organic. She brings a subtle and sophisticated feel to her works through a unique balance of color, composition and texture and has been featured in private and public collections across the U.S.

Denise grew up in Gahanna, Ohio and now lives and works out of her private studio in Canton, Georgia.

Highlights from the Past:

The Cartersville Public Library has been very fortunate to host so many fabulous local and Georgia artists since 2005. Bartow native, Walt Floyd, was the first artist to exhibit in the Gallery - just in time for the grand opening of our new facility.
