Alan’s Statement

My art is designed to create meaningful connection. Connections between the heritage of the
past, the excitement of the present and anticipation for the future that are experiential,
engaging and memorable. Artworks created from a diverse range of media enhance the character of

their settings and create a focal point for discovery by people of all ages.
