Calen James Adams was born in 1983 in Milford, Ohio. A suburb of Cincinnati.
At a young age, he was exposed to many different towns and cities across the US with a rich tradition of art.
Calen developed an early interest in art. He was raised in a household where art was second nature. He was influenced by his mother (a potter) who managed fine art galleries and watching his father, Larry Adams, a watercolorist.
Calen is greatly inspired by Andrew Wyeth, Stephen Scott Young, Joseph Zbukvic and Dean Mitchell.
Although mentored by his father, Calen is a self-taught artist and offers a unique style. He enjoys watercolors for the technical and unpredictable aspects of the medium. His main focus is to capture Hawaii’s historical scenes before they disappear.
