Alan began working with wood from an early age. His work to date straddles the boundaries of contemporary craft, sculpture and architecture and has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. Alan’s creative approach is tied closely to his intimate understanding of wood and a desire to work directly with a given material when making a design. The intention is to make appropriate and meaningful decisions based on this more sympathetic understanding of material and the means by which it may be manipulated. Having graduated with a Masters in Architecture from University College Dublin in September 2015, Alan currently works out of his studio in County Laois, imagining and creating one-of-a-kind and speculative pieces for both public and private clients.
