Alan Giana's unique and colorful style has made him one of today's
most popular scenic artists. Born and raised in Connecticut, Alan Giana
always wanted to be an artist. One of his first works of art was at the age
of four when he grabbed a magic marker and proceeded to scribble on
the wall with it. Needless to say his parents were not too happy, but a
career was set in motion. Alan's father is an accomplished ceramic
artist. Alan often watched his father apply glazes and different painting
techniques to create his masterpieces. Throughout his school years Alan
was always drawing and painting. He went on to college to study graphic
design and business management. With a degree in graphic design
management, Alan started his own illustration and design company in
the early 1990's with his wife Pamela. Through the years, Alan has
worked on a variety of commercial illustration and design projects. His
creations have appeared on book covers, magazines, children's games,
music CDs, and have been published in several books and magazines
showcasing the best in traditional airbrush and digital illustration.
The work of this master of images has won many awards, including the
Pro-Comm Award of Excellence by the Business Marketing Association,
the Premier Print Award by the Printing Industries of America, and the
Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Award. Alan's paintings have been
displayed in numerous galleries and shows around the country, including
The Delaware Art Museum.
Alan's love of nature and the sea have always been a big part of his life.
His appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us, even in our own
backyards, plays an important part in creating the inspiring artwork he is
known for today. Alan's paintings of colorful paths, charming country
hideaways, tranquil coastal waterways, and captivating Christmas scenes,
bring us to peaceful places. Places where we can escape for a moment and
appreciate all of the beauty around us.
