The Edinburgh paintings have pride of place in our hall and the commissioned picture sits above our dining room fireplace. I have also bought a copy of Alan’s “Sketch Book of Oman” – a high quality product which makes an excellent gift.All of Alan’s work is first class and of excellent value”

“Alan is a delightful person and a truly talented artist, I currently have two of Alan’s paintings and I have also commissioned Alan to paint a winter scene of the front of my business `City Retreat in the Snow` which we have used as the picture on our company christmas card, I think it`s amazing. His gallery in Ponteland has beautiful array of his own and other artists painting on display this coupled with the warm welcome and the hospitality received form both himself and his lovely wife Susan make a visit very worthwhile. Also the `Own Art` Scheme which allows you to purchase your piece over a period of time `interest free` is a great help. Keep up the good work Alan”
