  • Artist’s Statement

    The soft blue-grey distance and colours of the Australian landscape and atmosphere challenge me to create artwork that conveys Australia’s unique light. A land of extreme contrasts, I also aspire to share its harsh colourful beauty and it's history. I enjoy creating works that show space and distance. My work is traditional in style using oil on board or canvas. I also enjoy creating florals and beach scenes in pastel, and working with graphite or pen to create detailed works.

  • Biography

    Alison is passionate about painting people and places. Experienced in a variety of media, early works were commissions of buildings and rural subjects, often highly detailed using graphite or pen. She was awarded the Australia Day Cultural Award for Mundubbera Shire for services to Art, and won multiple prizes in the Region for her artworks. Subjects now include landscapes, florals and beach scenes using oils or soft pastels.
    Her work has been acquired by Shire and City Councils, Government Departments as well as by private collectors nationally. She has been selected as an exhibiting finalist in the Brisbane Rotary Art Spectacular since 2013, and an Exhibiting Finalist in the Lethbridge Landscape Prize for the last two years. Represented by Wide Bay Gallery.
