Born in Leicester in 1969, Adam Barsby grew up alongside five siblings and had an eye on the arts from an early age. He would watch his father build model aircraft in their garden shed and was taught by his mother to visualise how a piece would look before working on it. 

In 1996, Adam graduated with a first-class honours degree in Illustration at The Kent Institute of Art and Design. He would then go on to begin a prolific career as a freelance illustrator, collaborating with several galleries around London, allowing him to grasp the business side of the art world. 

Since going fully professional, Adam has won multiple awards, including three nominations for “Best Published Artist,” “Best Up and Coming Artist” in 1999 and “Best Selling Artist of the Year” in 2000. 

Adam’s signature work includes his "Bad Hair Day" illustrations, which feature a fun and vibrant portrait of a highland cow that can now be found on all kinds of gift items, prints and canvases — the perfect housewarming present or addition to your home.

More recently, Adam has ventured into new styles, focusing on art depicting everyday scenes of his childhood in Leicester in the 1970s and 1980s. Today, his work features charming landscapes of the English countryside featuring a lone child and canine companion.
