Richard Adams was born in Hampshire in 1960. He received a BA Hons in Graphic Design at Leicester Polytechnic Richard Adams childhood was spent amidst the British countryside in the south Cotswolds. The outstanding Cotswold landscape has had a strong and lasting influence on his art work.
In his art work Richard Adams creates a dream world often adding 'odd' people that seem to float above the ground and seldom stand upright. Full of humour Richard Adams prints are beautifully drawn and highly imaginative.
All Richard's paintings are produced using chalk pastel. They are then fixed and soaked in a special varnish that leaves an impervious surface.
