Watercolour and Oil Paintings

When not working with fibers, Alison explores with her paints, both watercolor and oils. Painting
from a young age, Alison studied fine art, photography, and communication and design while at the
Ontario College of Art and Design. She continues to supplement her education through college art
courses and painting workshops. Most recently she has taken up oil painting and enjoys exploring
with this expressive medium.

Inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds her, Alison's work reflects her connection to the natural
world and her love for the outdoors. She is most happy when painting en plein aire - breathing in the
emotion of a grand landscape, or the details of a particular flower, and working to capture that elusive
moment before her.

Alison held 2 solo shows of her painted works in 2011, and her 5th exhibition in Nelson's 2014 Artwalk.
Some of her current pieces can be viewed below. Prices listed are for unframed works.

Watch Alison paint the watercolour "A Painting Journey with Mary Louise" replayed in fast motion video.
