South Africa's former President, Thabo Mbeki, and Botswana's former President, Festus Mogae, unveiling Alan's life-size bronze of gemsbuck during the launch of Southern Africa's first Transfrontier Peace Park, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. For more details and photos click HERE.
Although an accomplished artist in drawing and painting, Alan began exploring sculpture in 1997 and this medium currently takes up most of his time.

"To portray the characteristics of a wild animal in a two-dimensional way, that is, through painting, is in itself a challenge. However, to capture these characteristics in a three-dimensional form, that is, through sculpting, remains for me the ultimate expression in art."

Before commencing work on a piece, Alan does numerous working drawings as well as skeleton and muscle studies until an understanding of the animal form emerges. Only then does he start the final sculpture.

Some of Alan's major commisions include a life-size bronze sculpture of two running gemsbok (oryx) for the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (see details below) and miniature bronzes of a buffalo for the golf players participating in the 1998 One Million Dollar Golf Challenge at Sun City.
