New Gallery Artist
Alan always had the desire to create and design. Alan has a diverse background, including landscape design, woodturning, pen and ink and watercolor. Bold and dynamic use of color enhances Alan's powerful yet simple designs. Alan's signature aesthetic dances the line between realism and abstraction, traditional and contemporary. Alan's contemporary spin on traditional subject matter injects fresh energy into the art world. As a contemporary artist, there is rarely a defined path that dictates the creation of a painting. Rather, each stroke of color and direction invites the next. The hand moves the brush, but it is the subconscious mind and spirit that guide the painting into being.
In addition, the gallery artists offer art in many media, which include:
original paintings, photography, jewelry, art tile, fabric collage,
stained glass and gourds, as well as affordable note cards and prints.
