Mainly working in oil, acrylic and encaustic paint mediums, Dan Allen's paintings describe his surrounding physical and mental environments.  Often his paintings refer to the ever-changing landscapes in his native California.  His work has been described as contemporary totems, abstracted landscapes and surreal portraits of people that have yet to evolve.  Any questions that you might have can be sent to Dan at  I am always interested in meetings new artists, finding new spaces to make work and of course new exhibition locations.  Also, I enjoy sharing ideas, techniques and sources of inspiration with artists around the globe.  We need to work together to strengthen and grow in all our artistic endeavors.
