Allan feels St. Ives is his natural painting home. It is this stimulating environment he has known all his life and along with other creatives reinvigorates and refreshes his painting energy.
Allan has a lifetime experience with the sea and as a surfer and swimmer is strongly’ sensitive to St Ives’ elemental energy, crashing and battering rocks with forces of strong currents and powerful waves ticking his adrenaline.
It’s all is about connecting with people’s emotions and the natural elements at the same time.
He feels the sea, like painting speaks to him, “It is a raw energy unchained, though like us in its chains too.”
