I’m a hairdresser by trade but have been an artist from the time I was a small child. I developed a love for photography in 2005 where I learned to use Micrographic picture publisher and printed on my own from 2005 to present day. I went freelance as a hairdresser and eventually opened my own salon. It took a breakup of 18 years and to take my mind off things I picked up my camera and started taking pictures of sunflowers. I soon discovered Adobe photoshop for the iPhone as a creative tool to use to create and develop my artwork. I started posting my work on Instagram @sirallenartist. In August of 2018 I did my first art show which I had a lot of fun and the first taste of success in the selling of my artwork. My dreams of being an artist as a little boy have truly come to life.
