Alison is concerned with texture and light. She uses acrylic mediums with granular additives applied with various tools to express the textures she observes in the environment.
Oil colour is then applied to define and illuminate her paintings. Alison is fascinated by changes in the colour of light at different times of the day and enjoys early morning and late afternoon light as well as the colours of sunset and the gloaming.
Alison is especially inspired by water and her favourite places include the coast of Suffolk, Essex, Devon and Cornwall, The Isle of Skye, The Lake District and The Thames. More exotic favourites include the Maldives and Sri Lanka.
