Alan Somerville biography

Two Famous Sculptors in Galeria Aniela! Alan Somerville (left) Robin Holliday (right)Alan SOMERVILLE was born in Roslyn Duedin and from early childhood Alan was a prolific drawer. He was selected for special art classes at the age of six.

He was intensely skilful in drawing people and animals in action. He was a genius. However, the journey of life pointed Alan towards farming. 

While working hard on his farm for over thirty years, he continued to draw and paint.  Also, Alan become a tutor of drawing and painting in Manioto District Otago and he was an active member of Central Otago Art Society. 

Alan's desire was to pursue Art full time, consequently, he took his family to Dunedin where Alan was able to use the facilities of the Otago Polytechnic evening classes to develop an understanding of bronze casting and other sculpting techniques.  Alan was accepted as a member to Artist Otago Art Society.

In 1988 Alan Immigrated to Australia with the intention of finding of finding the Queensland marble quarries and exploring this medium for his artistic talent.  However, in Sydney Alan was presented with an opportunity to work with bronze at the Fine Art Bronze Foundry for almost four years. He was accepted to the NSW Sculptor's Society and Ku-ring-gai Art Society.
