Allan was born in Sydney in 1944. He has been a professional traditional impressionist oil painter for more than 20 years. Allan's love for the Australian bush, coupled with his belief in natures endless beauty, have always been the source of his inspiration to paint. Allan therefore prefers to paint on-site, often camping for extended periods in his beloved outdoors. It is this strong relationship with nature that enables him to delicately capture the mood, atmosphere and sensuality of Australia's beautiful landscapes.

Allan is considered a great friend and, in earlier days a teacher, to many other professional artists. Allan has achieved considerable success in regional art competitions. His paintings have been sold to domestic and international private collectors and corporations. Despite his success, Allan's works are still very affordable.
