He keeps a studio where he maintains a mixed practice of the formal and experimental. He makes drawings using a thermal technique and has produced spin paintings. His drawings of the Elgin Marbles are highly physical, involving a variety of drafting mediums. His work is based on the processes of drawing he encountered whilst a student at the Royal Academy Schools, where drawing the nude was mandatory for the first year of studies. His tutors included Norman Blamey RA, Peter Greenham RA and Olwyn Bowey RA plus others. Alan maintains links with Nick Ward who taught him drawing at Great Yarmouth.
