Jeff Adams


    My work is mostly graphic drawing in pencil, pen and ink of iconic local trees and landscapes. My interest is driven by my concerns about the conservation and preservation of the natural world. I often impose imaginative ideas upon naturalistic starting points and maintain a hand-crafted method, which means that my working practices are slow and time-consuming.

    I’ve studied graphic novels and I was recently inspired to produce a comic book about my dogs in which I depicted their ordinary daily lives.

    I am emeritus professor of education at the University of Chester, where I co-direct a research centre into creative education, and I have published many articles and books about my research. I previously led the Artist-Teacher programme at Goldsmiths College.
