After completing courses in Commercial Art and Graphic Design at the Worthing College of Art, Allan pursued a career within the Construction Industry. During that period, he maintained his artistic interests and obtained various commissions including public art which remains on permanent display.
Allan’s career in construction took an unexpected turn when a client, who happened to be a sculptor, gave him a block of clay with the sole instruction of ‘returning with a piece of art!’ This opportunity inspired him to complete a casting and mould making course and to return to his former artistic passions.
Allan is now a full time sculptor primarily forming in clay and casting in cold metals and resin stone from his studio in East Sussex. Commissions are most welcome, be it a variation of an existing sculpture or a completely new visual concept.
