Why do I make paintings?
I'm a intuitive contemporary artist and fascinated by the emotional landscape
within us and the natural landscape around us
Creating connects me to an energy and an exciting sense of exploration.
"Alison's art has a unique depth of energy and beautiful movement"
The influence of having been a midwife has naturally communicated to my art.
Experiencing how creatively the world turns.
A pendulum of natures energy always in motion, growing, blooming, adapting and fragmenting
A perpetual changing of the seasons of life, nature and landscapes
that form part of who we are, how we grow and our place in the world.
In recent years I've taken a deeper dive into painting and now I love sharing my work with others.
My technique is happily and unapologetically rebellious.
Mainly self taught I am free of formality and I create what feels right.
Each piece has multiple layers. Building and excavating. Sketching, scraping and sanding.
I use acrylic paints, inks, watercolours, pastels and other mixed media.
Each painting is unique and takes on many thoughtful forms and unfolding
until it finds its completion.
"I respond as the painting unfolds. It’s like a very colourful dance."
Buying original art can add a unique visual energy to your home and I hope
that my paintings find space where they will bring
a special pleasure for you to enjoy for many years to come.
