Alan has exhibited at Ayr's Beresford Gallery. Studio visits may be arranged by appointment. He participates in the Ayrshire Open Studios event in spring.
Alan is interested in depicting urban and rural images of Scotland and elsewhere, involving people going about their everyday lives. He loves to engage with the often hyper real colours of the Scottish landscape - something of a luxury for someone who spent many years working in wood. His paintings often involve movement and activities. They depict the ways in which people, adults and children, interact with their environment. He also prefers to create paintings which people may want to live with, works which tell a story and carry on telling it. His vibrant artworks have been called 'naive' and 'primitive' - his unique vision is certainly unclouded by formal art school training. Most of his work is also available in print form.
