Biography:

Painting has been a life-long vocation for Allan Dunfield. For most of his career, he has focussed on painting the British Columbian wilderness. Working primarily in acrylics, Allan works to capture the many sides of the disappearing west coast landscape.

Allan was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He was accepted into the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1969 where he studied for two years. Allan has been painting actively ever since. Leaving his career as a professional chef, Allan began seriously painting every day. He has been a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists for 12 years and he achieved signature status as a member of the AFCA in 2012. Over the past dozen years, Allan has participated in numerous shows and received several awards. His works hang in corporate and personal collections throughout Canada, the United States, Australia, and Europe.

Artist Statement: “The Landscape has always been a big part of my life; camping, hiking, and fishing. I have always been in “awe” of nature’s power and beauty. For me, to try and connect with its ever changing energy and capture some of the personality of this immense canvas is my muse. I am drawn by the sight, sound and smell of this disappearing beauty. Simplicity with focus is a daily challenge which helps me leave room to connect with the viewer. I hope I create a mood which allows the viewer to step out of a world full of turmoil and confusion for a single moment.
