Allan Morgan lives in the beautiful border country of Herefordshire and Powys. Born in 1952 he graduated from Coventry Lanchester Art College with BA Honours in Fine Art. His professional career has since focused mainly on realistic landscape painting, although he has also enjoyed considerable success as an illustrator. He has recently extended his style to encompass a more "colourist" approach in much of his work. The basis of his inspiration remains largely the same however, namely the love of light, colour and atmosphere in landscape. Influences in Allan's paintings are varied and include the Pre-Raphaelites, fauvists and impressionists. Having formerly spent many years living near the coast, he regularly returns to this subject matter with much of his work.
