Unfortunately I came down with a really bad cold that kept me in bed and mostly sleeping through the week.
Thanks to my sister, I got some paints and paper for my project.
As I was pretty much unable to do anything this week I decided to play a little with the paints to check the colours.
Alison’s work is driven by the desire to display atmosphere and emotion of a place. Through art she expresses feelings that are often inexpressible through words. Her interest in nature and non materialistic beauty has been a constant source of passion since childhood, be it relationships between people, the struggles of life and the ever changing but constant landscape around. Fueled by a previous career in nursing, Alison aims to combine these emotions.
‘My landscape paintings aim to have a sense of mystery and ambiguity. Painting atmosphere and emotion play a major part too, this is derived from life experiences, memories, and music. Often my oil paintings appear quite bold & simple from a distance but on closer inspection it becomes apparent there are far more complexities to my creative ideas, a comparison which can be paralleled to life.’
