Artist Bio

Travis Adams was born and raised in the beautiful town of Shelbyville, Kentucky. He attended Centre College in Danville, Kentucky where he received a Bachelor of Science in Financial Economics. His first exposure to glass was an introductory course with professor and artist Stephen Rolfe Powell during his last semester at Centre. Upon graduation, he experienced a brief odyssey in the world of finance, yet soon realized his passions were leading him elsewhere. He made his way back to Danville to direct a non-profit organization. On his days off he worked with Powell. It was this experience that lead him to the Graduate Assistant position in the visual arts program at Centre College. There he began the development and exploration of his own work, and began his journey into glass, which he says, β€œis a dream he never knew existed.”
