Adam Roud was born and brought up in Hampshire. He returned here after graduating from John Moores University, Liverpool, where he studied Fine Art. After a stint working at the Morris Singer Foundry learning the process of lost wax and sand casting, Adam made the transition to full-time sculptor and has developed his work with large and small commissions, figure studies, portraits and the main body of abstract pieces.
At the heart of Adam’s work is drawing, whether from the nude with pencil and charcoal, chisel and stone, clay and knife. Examples of his work can be seen in private collections or at Roche Court in Hampshire. In 2016, Adam was commissioned to make the first life-size bronze of Jane Austen which is situated in the Market Square in Basingstoke to commemorate her bicentenary in 2017.
