About

Allison’s interests as a painter and drawer range widely in terms of medium. Her work has featured an emphasis on many types of material such as acrylic paint, conte crayon, colored pencil, ink, graphite, charcoal, oil paint and also digital work. The majority of her pictorial work is figurative with a strong emphasis on light and shadow as well as an exploration of mystery, darkness and curiosity. She finds inspiration in music which she uses to channel underlying moods or tones in her works. She also places a special emphasis on portraiture in her body of work, finding great satisfaction in the attempt to capture human emotion and expression on paper or canvas. Allison lives in the Santa Cruz mountains with her polydactyl cat Egon.
