He showed a natural flair for art at a very young age. After school he spent five years studying art.
He then spent the next 27 years in the world of design in Leeds based agencies. Art Lounge International have been working alongside A J Callan for some twenty years in the Leamington Spa showroom.
Illustration made up a large part of his work, giving him the necessary disciplines and experiences he would need in the future.
In 2006 he handed in his car keys and laptop, and made a career change to 'live his dream'.
Since then his published and original works have sold worldwide to collectors who share his perspective on life.
Working in acrylics and pastels he adds drama by use of strong lighting and a carefully selected palette.
