Alan Pickersgill, Gosport Member Since August 2009 Artist Statement I am mostly self taught although I did study art at school. I have drawn and painted for as long as I can remember but have kept my work to myself. After school I joined the corporate rat race in the world of IT, was lucky enough to travel a lot and meet many great people. In 2005 I was offered the opportunity to desert the corporate world and opted for voluntary redundancy.
During my life in IT my art took a bit of a back seat; I have now started to delve into newer forms of art. I love to draw and paint, particularly when I can achieve that spark of life in a face, either human or animal.
I have also been persuaded to display my work and have had some luck at selling a few. I hope you like what you see and I would appreciate any constructive comments.
