My ARTOBIOGRAPHY takes the reader through a rich life from Alan Soffer's beginnings in the cradle. Growing up as a sports addict and continuing to his work as a Dentist, which is depicted at some length for its importance. But especially for the important work that began with his study of ancient Dentistry and the five years of art about this concept. Moving from Ceramic sculpture to abstract expressionist painter seemlessly. Along the way, creating the first national conference on the subject of Encaustics. Pushing the subject to a new level and continuing his fascination with its beauty to this day.
