Allan paints with a palette knife, applying thick impasto in brilliant colors found only in dreams.

Allan’s eye-catching red stamp graces each of his paintings, setting them apart from other works on gallery walls. Allan has established a national following with his sophisticated style and obvious passion for painting.

His work hangs in private collections in Kansas City, Seattle, California, Hong Kong and Malaysia.
