From full length life-size public commissions to intimate portrait heads, Alan works from sittings, photographs and measurements. For public commissions and outdoor pieces a site visit is essential. Each mould is created from a clay model, and subsequently cast in bronze or resin bronze. Alan works with a foundry in Birmingham. Alan is a sympathetic portrait sculptor of children, and sculpts animals, both wild-life and domestic, which can be included in large-scale portraits and imaginative pieces.
Having trained in Fine Art at Reading and the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris, Alan worked as a teacher before starting his career as a freelance sculptor in 1990. Alan has recently moved from Devon to Oxford, on the occasion of his marriage to Jenny – they have a combined family of seven children. Alan will be exhibiting at Oxford Art Weeks (South Oxford), 17 - 26 May 2014.
