to the online gallery of artist Alan Hayman
Having had no formal training in art Alan has become the artist
known today through his own study and knowledge of the landscape
and wildlife. He is generally shy when asked about his technique
and styles, for they differ with the different mediums he uses.
Many of his patrons, however would disagree and given he has sold
over 600 original paintings during his time in Glen Lyon is remarkable
evidence in itself that he is indeed an artist of high repute.
Viewers of Alan's work are genuinely impressed when they realise
that the paintings, limited edition prints and sculptures are the
work of one artist. Painting is his life and if anything is certain
about Alan Hayman, it is that he was born to paint. He was born
in Montrose and spent his early childhood around Montrose Basin
and began studying and drawing the varied bird life around the basin
from an early age when most of his peers were still playing with
His ambition is now to buy a bigger boat to allow him to sail even
further. He dreams about exploring St Kilda and some of the more
remote islands of the Shetlands sometime in the future, but that
is another story yet to be told.
