Artist’s Statement

Alan is married to Dr. Elizabeth Austin, a world renown atmospheric physicist, author and forensic meteorologist, who started her own company, WeatherExtreme Ltd., twenty nine years ago and has grown it into a world-wide business. Her father is Patrick Williams, an Oscar nominated, Emmy and Grammy award winning composer of music including a tremendous catalog for movies and television. The Austin’s have a seventeen year old son, Moody, who is already quite an accomplished artist. Alan says his main inspiration is his family. The Austin’s home is in Reno/Tahoe, Nevada. Austin says it’s like living in Mayberry, which he and Elizabeth both appreciate after having lived and traveled all over the world most of their lives.
