  • About / Bio

    Gordon Allen`s work includes oils, watercolors, etchings and illustrations. His drawings have appeared in hundreds of books and publications, and his etchings and oils are in collections across the country. He is devoted to painting en plein air and loves nothing more than spending the day outside behind the easel and experiencing the world, man-made or natural, in a studied way that is available to few but artists. His etchings are an extension of his illustrating career and are usually done in the studio at more deliberate pace than his plein air work.

    Though most of his subject matter is in the sporting genre, he recently illustrated "A Little History of the United States”; published by Yale University Press, which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.

    Gordon lives in Chapel Hill, NC with his economist wife and two sporting dogs.  He has recently focused on exploring and capturing the the beauty surrounding us in NC.
