Biography

Norman Allan taught himself to draw faces sitting in the Future Bakery, and then to paint/draw (on wood) more at the Arts and Letters Club's Sunday life sessions. He’d say, “I scribble. In a sense, I throw myself at the canvas. I usually start by scribbling a brow and an eye and then go on 'til it, the picture, ‘works’. And I can usually stop in time!” 

Norman thinks highly of his work, saying, “It’s been pointed out to me (if I may boast) that while my hand is distinctive, recognizable (and original, as far as 'expressionism' goes), no two pieces are quite alike stylistically. There is an inventiveness!”
