Alan Bull is an artist dividing his time between Greenport, NY and Newburyport, MA who is known for his colorful, boldly painted images in various media including watercolors, oils, acrylics, monotypes and pastels. Originally from Old Town, Maine, he received his BFA from the Philadelphia College of Art and worked as a muralist/portrait artist before spending 4 years as a studio assistant to glass sculptor Dan Dailey in Amesbury, Massachusetts.
