Alan was born in St. Clair, Michigan. In 1955 the first
St. Clair International Trophy Race was held on the St. Clair River.
The thundering engines of Such Crust III, Gale V, Thunderbolt, and
many others... roared throughout the small river town.
That roar made a lasting impression that inspired him
to paint hydroplanes.
Since Graduating from the Center of Creative Studies in 1977,
and with the encouragement and support of his family and friends,
Alan pursued a career as an artist. His training gave him the
confidence and skill to create the highly detailed, digital renderings
he does today.
