Alison was born in Wimbledon in 1971. Painting from her Surrey-based studio, she frequently spends time in Cornwall, soaking up its dramatic coastlines and evocative landscapes, which provide her current source of inspiration.

From an early age, Alison has embraced her enthusiasm for Fine art, with frequent visits to The St. Ives School of Art, taking her formal art training at Epsom School of Art & Design and Harrow College (B.A. hons). It was on one of her first visits to St. Ives School of Art in Cornwall, as a teenager, that she first met artist’s Roy Ray and Bryan Pearce and discovered the joy of sketching and painting ‘en plein air’ surrounded by the changing Cornish landscape.

Her recent work has enabled her to fully extend her skills and reach a new level of maturity. This collection of dramatic Cornish paintings explores the atmospheric relationship between land and sea, light and air. The vibrancy of this vital changing landscape provides rich material for Alison’s exploration of colour and paint. Her responsive mark-making traverses the canvas, where the image evolves through palette knife, brushstrokes and collage.
