With an eye to perfection, Alison has a focused approach to her art making. Turtles, animals, and nature imagery are the primary subject matter of her methodical creations. Her artwork evokes emotion and asks the spectator to take a closer look. Alison’s motivation is peace and understanding. She believes in “paying it forward” as well as in the power of karma.
Growing up with a non-verbal learning disability Alison found school life difficult but overcame this adversity with family support and working very hard.
