Alison enjoyed success as a commercial illustrator and designer, before launching her fine art career. Inspired by nature and passionate about painting, Alison paints directly from the landscape, both at home and on the Cornish coast. She uses these initial experiences to inspire the large gestural paintings created in her Hampshire studio.
Her curiosity with layered surfaces and marks have led her to explore various media, painting with oil or acrylics and more recently encaustic wax, often combined with metal filings, marble dust and coloured charcoal. Her paintings have a vitality that translates directly from the energy of her brushstrokes. There is a play of light built from layers of atmospheric glazed colour. The end result is her reaction to the landscape, expressing humility and wonder at the overwhelming forces of nature.
"I have been studying changing landscapes, the sketched lines on the sand, cloud movements, the tidal shift; trying to tell that story and bring that energy into my paintings."
Alison is based in Grayshott.
