Allen and the phrase “bad mood” don’t seem to be from the same world. Unfalteringly cheery and always ready for a bit of brotherly picking on, Allen improves the disposition of those around him. His quiet demeanor translates to delicate, personal pieces that have a calming feel. He enjoys painting landscapes and nature scenes, and particularly likes adding sunflowers to his images. Allen regularly takes inspiration from fellow artists and applies it to his own work, integrating new subject matter and experimenting with diverse materials.
