Joshua Allen is an artist from Westminster. He works in oils and other media. For four years he lived and worked in Denver, Colorado, exhibiting with the Denver Artists Society. Now living in the area again he has been focusing on drawing portraits and landscapes. Inspired and awed by images of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel when he was nine, Josh resolved to become an artist. After brief pursuits in film making and music, he returned to drawing and painting. Josh finds inspiration in the expressiveness of people's faces and the features of local landscapes.
