Allan Wood

Allan was born in the Roman Camps near Uphall in 1947. His interest in art was nurtured through his school and college years. However, his chosen career was in the oil industry providing him the opportunity to travel the world and experience different cultures and customs. His extended stays in many countries inspired him to develop his style and subject matter. Having had solo exhibitions in Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Holland, Ireland and UK, many of his works are now in private collections around the world. In 2017, he became a full-time artist, setting up a studio at his home in Braidwood, where he continues to paint full-time. Allan's paintings cover a wide range of subjects, however, his passion is the animal kingdom.
