Artist Bio
Alan Pierrot was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1940.  After careers as an orthopedic surgeon and health care executive, he painted for the first time in 2006.  His art education has been self-directed though guided by master artists through workshops, videos and one on one mentoring.   He works almost entirely in oils.  He lives with his wife, Judie, in Fresno, California.
