    Adam Binder grew up on a farm in the picturesque surroundings of The Cotswolds, where he lives today. It is a place he holds dear, as it was growing up in this idyllic environment that awakened his senses to the beauty and wonder of the natural world. It has been the inspiration for his art for the last 20 years.

    Adam was aware from an early age that he had a flair for the arts and was encouraged by his grandfather to develop his talent. Uninterested in academic subjects at school, Adam focused all his energies on art and sports, and when not out on the field playing rugby or cricket, he could always be found in the art department where his teachers and contemporaries nurtured his passion for ceramics with enthusiasm.

    Visiting Africa as a child had been a magical experience for Adam, but visiting again now, as an artist, was a truly inspirational one. Whether camping out in the African bush or residing by the banks of the Zambezi, Adam was provided daily with invaluable exposure to the most majestic and mesmerizing wildlife, which he spent his days studying, sketching and photographing. It was a time of huge importance to Adam's art, which continues to inform much of the work he does today and it is the unique stimulation that Africa provides that calls Adam and Lisa back for regular return visits whenever their busy schedule allows.

    On their return home Adam decided not to continue his studies at art college but instead set up his first business following his initial interest of ceramics, practicing and refining his sculpting skills in his spare time. Working in a converted barn adjacent to their home and using equipment purchased from the proceeds of earlier works, Adam and Lisa spent four years running a successful venture producing ceramic kitchen and giftware. However, an old back injury, caused whilst playing rugby at school years earlier, eventually dictated an end to a schedule of six hours a day at a potters' wheel, forcing Adam to consider an alternative medium in which to work.

    It was whilst attending his niece's birthday party that year that fate stepped in to guide the way. A guest, who was aware of Adam's sculpting skills and had connections within the collectibles world, suggested Adam take up a position as a commercial sculptor. Confident that his carving skills were now finely tuned, Adam felt able to accept this new challenge and was snapped up by leading collectibles company, Harmony Kingdom. Adam quickly proved to be a major asset to the company producing many extremely popular pieces, and it was during this time that he created his hugely successful signature series, the 'Roly Poly' Range, his first venture into animal sculpture.

    Five years down the line, Adam Binder Editions is established as one of the leading international collectibles companies and Adam is finally in a position to embark on his dream of sculpting more exclusive, wildlife Bronzes that he hopes will appeal to fine art collectors around the world. To coincide with this, his vision is also to use his art to draw awareness to the plights of the world's endangered species and to develop the charity work he already does raising funds to support the work of international conservation groups.

    Adam continues to be overwhelmed by the response he gets to his work and feels privileged to be one of the lucky few granted the opportunity to make a living pursuing their passions. He sincerely hopes he will be able to continue bringing both enjoyment and awareness to others through his art for many years to come.

    Recently Adam Binder became the winner of the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year 2010. The bronze 'Sinking Feeling' won the Sculpture category and then went on to win the overall competition.
