Alton decided he wanted to be an artist when he was 14. He began teaching himself by devoting hours to honing his drawing & painting skills. Alton's worked closely with VSAarts, volunteering and designing t-shirts. He's taught art classes at the Birch School and RHD-RI. He's also a member of the DD Council. Alton has shown his work widely in RI, and has also been featured at the Outsider Art Fair in NYC.
