    I hired Alan to give my daughter private art lessons. He is talented, intuitive and creative, as well as having a good rapport with children. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone wanting to develop their talents, especially at their own pace.

I am a professional mural artist and decorative finish painter. I attended Otis college in LA as well as taught illustration technique there. I painted and was an art director with Disney theme parks. I paint for film and television as a set painter and faux finish artist
