Thank you for viewing my art, I am very proud of the work God has blessed me with an ability to do.
My name is Adam Mercer. I currently live in the mountains of north Georgia with my beautiful wife and best friend Jennifer. We have 4 boys - Sam ('th Ham") 16, Thomas ("th Train") 14, James ("Jamesy") 14 and "ACTION" Jackson (aka Smilen Jack) 11. I am a country boy that grew up around heavy equipment, sawmills, being in the woods, pastures etc. I learned an appreciation for "old school" ways of work and living.
Since I was a young boy, I have always been obsessed with pencil and pen-n-ink illustrations. Black and white just "pops" to me and attracts my eye. I am a graduate from the School of Architecture at Southern Tech in Marietta, GA. I spent a large part of my college career as a render-er in pen-n-ink for home designers and architects. I also spent time as a draftsman before Computer Aided Drawing! After many years of project management in Atlanta I jumped at the chance to design cabins here in Blue Ridge, GA.
Living here in this awesome setting I get constant inspiration for drawing. I often think about the feeling of stress falling away when I go on walks and see wonderful landscapes of the mountains and neat old barns, trees, vintage farm equipment and trucks. After 11 years here, I have never lost appreciation of it. Visitors to the area often mention the same feeling of stress falling away when they come here. I want to capture the scenes I enjoy nearly everyday so that others can take it home with them and when they look at the wall and see the drawings, they will feel that stress melt away if only for a few minutes.
