Alan Hawkins is Manchester born and bred, and still retains his roots in Manchester. He has painted full time since 1990.
He studied at Hartford College of Art and on leaving went into the advertising industry.
However, the desire and the need to paint became the over-riding passion and portrait painting in traditional oils is Alans sole object.
Alans works have been accepted by the Royal Society of Portrait painters in London and has also been exhibited at the Mall Gallery London, Warrington Art Gallery, Whitby Art Gallery and at G-Mex in Manchester.
Portraits can be undertaken from photographs or as a sitting either in their own surroundings or at my studio, and Alan is more than happy to travel to accommodate for the client.
Alan Specialises in Oil paintings onto Canvas and Portraits. Alan can paint any family member from a combination of sittings and photographs taken or provided.
He works from The Stables, a Cheshire studio allowing him to concentrate all his energies on his paintings.
Portraits commissions are taken and all portraits are painted to the very best standard.
