About Alan Carroll
Since coming to New York City from Ireland in 1996, I’m fortunate to have completed many major projects both nationally and internationally, working with AD top 100 architects and designers, and clients including such instantly recognizable names as Woody Allen, Paul Simon and Oprah Winfrey, and world-renowned architects such as Robert A. M. Stern and Quinlan Terry. I’ve exhibited at Kips Bay Decorators Showhouse twice.
My work has been published repeatedly in World of Interiors, Veranda, Architectural Digest, Robb Report, O at Home, House & Garden, Elle Décor, California Homes, and The New York Times (newspaper and magazine), as well as featured in numerous online articles, and the book Farrow & Ball: The Art of Color. I contributed a chapter to a new book by Juliette Aristides, called Lessons in Classical Painting, published by Watson Guptill in 2016. I teach classes in painting, and am in the process of writing a non-fiction book about Art and Culture called Painting the Veil.
