JANE ADAMS was born in Vancouver and began to show an interest in the visual arts while still a young child. Her first studies in England took place in 1961-62 when she enrolled at the Chelsea School of Art; her teachers there included LAWRENCE GOWING and ELIZABETH FRINK. Then, from 1962 until her graduation in 1966, she was a student at the Vancouver School of Art (now Emily Carr University) where she studied with JACK SHADBOLT, DON JARVIS, ROY KIYOOKA and ORVILLE FISHER. Adams’ first solo exhibition took place in 1973 at the Bau-Xi Gallery in Vancouver. She has since had a long series of shows across Canada, the most recent in 2009 at the Elliott Louis Gallery in Vancouver. From 1969 until 1972 she received four grants from the Canada Council and a number of works were purchased by corporate, private and public collections (including the National Art Bank). More recently her work has been featured in many corporate collections.
