Described as 'your favourite leisure time artist', Adam embraces the everyday object finding inspiration from the colouring book image, travel guidebooks, and scout camping paraphernalia. Kitsch and humorous, yet equally poignant, Adam's work rejoices in the mundane and is an investigation of the notion that holiday-making is just another ordinary everyday activity and that the holiday is essentially a fantasy that rarely lives up to our expectations.

Since graduating from his Masters in Fine Art at the Royal College of Art in 2006, Adam has lived and worked as an artist in London. He has exhibited widely in the UK, Europe, Asia and America. The British Museum, the V&A, UBS, Boeing Asia and Debbie Harry are just some of the collectors of Adam's work. In July 2009 Adam was awarded his first major public art commission by Futures Community College in Southend and Commissions East.

Adam has recently finished a solo exhibition and residency at the Kloster Bentlage and Kolvenburg in Germany. He has completed two new editions for Peacock Visual Arts in Aberdeen, the Eastern Pavilions Print Portfolio with Smiths Row and the Ghosts of Gone Birds Print Portfolio for Jealous. At the beginning of November 2011 Adam unveiled his second major public art commission in Cambridge for SmartLIFE. In 2012 he will be working on solo projects in Aldeburgh and Aberdeen and new editions with Curwen Press, TAG Fine Arts and Peacock Visual Arts.
