Adam Rhine began his artistic life as a doodler. Choosing to become an artist at age eleven, he soon mastered the covert art of doodling in school, a practice that he has perfected as an adult. All of his Judaica works began as tiny ballpoint sketches, usually on Post-its, quickly capturing ideas and designs. He then pastes them into his sketchbook and forgets until inspiration leads him to expand and perfect one particular design into a vivid and ornate watercolor painting.
Rhine holds a Bachelors in Fine Art in Illustration from Northern Illinois University, has worked as a professional artist since 1991, and is a member of the American Guild of Judaic Art. He serves on the Board of Directors for the Lincolnwood Jewish Congregation in Lincolnwood, Illinois. His work has been featured on the Hallmark Channel, in the Rothschild Gallery in St. Louis, and as the artistic focus of best-selling calendars for three years running.
