I love the imperfect, slightly eccentric, witty quality of the world around me. My hope is that my art will never become so serious that I betray the uniqueness of this life that inspires me. Often if
something seems too perfect in my art, I will skew it towards the unrealistic to capture the essence of a whim. Although I have illustrated several gift books and done many original paintings, my passion is to put the fun in function by creating items everybody uses including clocks, picture frames, vases, boxes, and more.
The Allen Designs Studio is located in Vancouver, Washington with 4 employees whose main purpose seems to be spoiling my daughters Alexis (16) and Jessica (11) as well as our dog, Parker, while still making clocks, designing and taking care of our valued customers.
