Lloyd Allen has painted in oil for many years. His work has been influenced by painters such as Corot, Seago, Turner, Constable and Rembrandt, as well more contemporary artists such as David Leffel and Richard Schmid'.

Whilst being largely self-taught he has taken courses at a number of art schools including ‘The Norfolk Painting School’ and ‘The Royal Academy’.

Lloyd works exclusively in oils, because of its technical potential to capture the illusive nature of light, the main inspiration for his panting’s.
