“A tree growing out of the ground is as wonderful today as it ever was. It does not need to adopt new and startling methods.”
~ Robert Henri

Alan Mizell has spent a lifetime creating art and perfecting his skills, and is a world class portrait painter, creating figurative portraits in the classical tradition of painterly realism. Each work is a labor of love, and he seeks to create paintings that touch the heart and soul, works that tell a story or capture a moment in time, art that shall become a precious heirloom to be cherished and handed down as a legacy through future generations.

Consider celebrating your own life by commissioning a classic work of art, gift a loved one a painting of themselves that shall be treasured for a lifetime, or honor someone who has given to the world with the timeless beauty of a painted portrait.

Born in Louisiana in 1964, Alan makes his home in Houston, TX where he maintains a studio and works to express the beauty of humanity through portrait painting. He is affiliated with Art League Houston and has studied portrait painting with such notable painters as Phil Sandusky and Polly Liu. Often working directly from life Alan understands how busy one's schedule can be, and usually completes much of the process of your portrait using sketches and photographs. This ability also allows him to create wonderful posthumous portraits, or paintings of those too busy or far away to sit for a portrait.

Whatever your portrait need... executive, family, bridal, memorial or posthumous, child, or pet, contact Alan today for more information about adding your own portrait to his body of work.
