Home to Alan Brain contemporary artist where only original abstract paintings are made.



I have been making art in Dorset for about four years now having moved from Chobham Surrey. Our new home had a large garage which I have converted into two art studios - one for my wife who also paints. The loft has been converted to a room which is now our art gallery.

Come and view the art (they are all unique paintings) we will make you feel very welcome. You can browse and ask questions and buy a piece if you wish to. I guarantee all the art to be original and no copies of any kind have been made.
