South West Mosaic Artists

Allan has lived in Exmouth for over 30 years. The South West is a glorious place to live and create art and that feeling is expressed in most of his work. His compositions are generally abstract, but each new work is an exploration in some way of colour combinations, form and line. He is an affiliate of Lyme Bay Arts and exhibits with them regularly, and in other art venues in the UK. Commissions for private clients are undertaken as well as public space installations.

Primarily self-taught, Allan has developed a style that is individual, using venetian glass smalti, stone, marble, gold leaf, porcelain, mirror, paua shell, as well as his own hand made glass fused and porcelain forms.

Initial outlines are drawn and then the laying of each piece is thought of individually rather than a mechanistic placement technique, making decisions about colour and cutting the precise shape needed for the position to work with the flow of the overall composition.
