Profile Information


I am Alan Brain and I am delighted to be part of the Art Colony. Such a refreshingly vibrant non commercial site.

I simply love to paint. It is what i do and who I am. I have been doing it for 20 years now. before that (apart from being young :)) I was a pilot and a GM who ran a business within an airline. my previous life's experiences appear in my work so don't be surprised if you see "flying" in some of my work!

You can find out everything you want about me in my website AlanBrainArt and i just love to talk art so please get in touch

best wishes, Alan
