About Alan Dax

The essence of my work attempts to convey the timeless spirit of the West Country, with its ever changing moods and atmospheric scenery. The wild moors, ancient country lanes and dramatic coastline provide an alternative to the constant buzz and connectivity of modern life. I am inspired by windswept hawthorn, misty valleys and rugged cliffs.

My home village backs onto Dartmoor and I am within easy reach of the sea, so I can experience these natural surroundings in all weathers. New ideas evolve from thought provoking landscapes creating the inspiration for my oil paintings.
