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 and of printmaking; Sometimes mixing them up together. The methods I employ to produce these varied and many layered works, is as fluid and interesting as the fish we look after.
