Allan Morgan was born in 1952 and studied at Swansea and Coventry (Lanchester) Art Colleges, he graduated with a BA in Fine Art (Painting) and is now a full-time artist living in the beautiful border country of Herefordshire and Powys.
After graduating he embarked on a career as an illustrator in publishing, the basis of his inspiration is in the light, colour and atmosp...here of landscape, influenced by the pre-raphaelites, fauvists and the Impressionists. His professional painting career has since focussed on realist landscape painting. Having formerly spent many years living near the coast, he regularly returns to this subject matter.
He has recently extended his style to encompass a more "colourist" approach. The basis of his inspiration remains largely his love of light, colour and atmosphere in landscape, capturing the changing sky is what Allan does best and he contrasts this with vibrant, bold foregrounds that instantly draw the viewer into the painting.
