Alan Smith was born in Kiel, Germany in 1941. He came to England in 1953, where his family has lived ever since on the South coast.
Alan was a qualified engineer by profession, and spent many years in the Middle East. Whilst working abroad he has always painted in his spare time.
He is a self taught artist who has developed many different styles. It is Alan’s ability to adapt and improve his technique that has enabled him
to produce work of such high calibre. Although he started painting using watercolours he now concentrates on working with acrylics and oils.
Since retiring he is devoted to his painting and travels extensively throughout the UK gaining material to inspire his artwork.
