About the artist:
Edward M. Adams, Psy.D. Biography (b.1949) is a professional artist with paintings and sculptures in private, public, and corporate collections throughout the world. One of his paintings was selected for the cover of The American Psychologist (October 1992), likely making him the first living psychologist with a painting on the cover of this prestigious journal. For over 20 years, Ed owned art galleries featuring his work in Lambertville, NJ and New Hope, PA. He was featured in a book about important living artists in Bucks County, PA, Artists of the River Towns: Their Works and Stories.
Along with oil and mixed media paintings, Ed's sculptures often depict abstract themes such as courage, hope, and compassion. His major sculptures include a 13' high bronze honoring Raoul Wallenberg in a public park in Parsippany, NJ. He was commissioned to create a bronze bust of Oscar Schindler as a gift for Steven Spielberg for making Schindler's List. Another commission is an 8' bronze sculpture, Prayer Feather, at Robert Woods Johnson Hospital, New Brunswick, NJ.
As a licensed clinical psychologist, Ed has maintained an active private practice in Somerville, NJ for 25 years, specializing in male psychology and well-being. His focus is empowering men and the "best of masculinity." In 1980, Ed founded Men Mentoring Men (M3), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing a shame-free environment for men to be thoughtful and proactive about living fulfilling lives. M3 has 80 active members, four ongoing groups, and is poised for a major expansion. Ed was an adjunct professor at Rider University teaching a graduate course on Gender Issues in Clinical Counseling. Considered an expert on "men's issues," Ed is a professional speaker and media guest. He is married to Marilee Adams, Ph.D., author, Change Your Questions, Change Your Life (2nd ed.). His son, Zak Adams, is an attorney at a major law firm in Washington, D.C.
