The paintings of Alan Kestner


I have worked as a computer programmer for the last thirty years. I studied fine art at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the 1960s but could never obtain work as an artist. However, now I have retired I can devote my time to painting and have taken part in several exhibitions and Oxford Artweeks.

As you can see I am rather a fanatic about dogs. The top photo shows me with my two previous dogs, Max and Minnie, and the bottom one shows my current dogs Meg and Pearl.
