Born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida, Alison fell in love with creating art at a very young age. While struggling to overcome a learning disability, Alison found comfort and confidence in expressing herself through visual art.
Alison was self-taught in her early years, then accepted into the Pinellas County Center for the Arts at Gibbs High School, where she was able to learn History, Photography, Figure Drawing, Welding, Pottery and Painting. She continued her education with the Fashion Program at Florida State University and studied abroad in London and Paris. Alison then transferred and received her AA to Parson’s School of Design at the New School University in New York City where she studied Fashion Illustration, Fashion Design, Patternmaking, Draping and Sewing.
Alison’s art has grown over the years and continues to evolve. Her visual art and fashion background helped her produce abstract works consisting of photo transfers and acrylic paints and mediums.
Her collections of portraits, visual images and landscapes are inspired by her love for art, travel, fashion, music, history and pop culture.
Her appreciation for color is evident in her design and the color combinations that give her pieces depth and interest.
