David Allan mechanical engineer by background, Dave spent his working life in a controlled, disciplined environment.

However his interest in abstract metal sculpture has always been a source of fascination and inspiration and he has produced and exhibited metal sculptures on a small scale over many years. Since retirement he has had time to develop his interest and his body of work has grown exponentially, almost under its own will.

David works in metal and stone using mainly steel, brass and Westmoreland green slate but takesinspiration from, and works with, any natural materials. Most of his work commences as a design for figurative pieces but during the development process, with freedom of expression, they grow into more abstract pieces as can be seen in his work today.

David has previously exhibited at the Atkinson Art Gallery, Southport and View 2 Gallery, Liverpool.
