Alan is a graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. He has worked in the art and advertising profession most of his life and his work has been recognized for excellence in art contests and in the Addy awards. He grew up in Pittsburgh, lived in Shreveport LA for many years before moving to South Florida in 1984. Alan is now doing his art full time and his technique and style continues to evolve. The majority of his work has been in acrylic, but recently is experimenting with oil.
In Nov. 2013 Alan entered the International Polo Club of Palm Beach 2014 Commemorative Poster Contest. His winning entry entitled "Polo Rumble" gives a unique impressionistic view of polo at the ground level, below the gracefulness of the polo ponies and players. (see Press tab) This recognition has motivated him to add more equestrian works to his portfolio.
