I now dedicate my time and energy to producing fine art sculptures influenced by my life experiences. I am currently focused on creating portraits inspired by some of the world's greatest past and present iconic pop figures. I also routinely experiment in other subject matter. My work can be found in private collections throughout the world. New releases are only available here online direct from me, Alan Derrick, Artist.

I am also on Etsy as https://www.etsy.com/shop/AgelessObjects
