Alan was born in London but brought up and educated in Guildford. He attended Guildford School of Art in the 1960’s where he studied Fine Art and ceramics and won the Thames and Hudson prize for painting. He works alone producing sculptures in high fired stoneware.
My current series of works is inspired by the tropical fish we keep, my love of colour, inks, of printmaking and sometimes mixing them all up together. The methods I employ to produce these many layered works is as fluid and interesting as the fish we look after.
