Artiste Painter

Alison has, since she was very young, been attracted to art, and her grandfather and great-grandfather were also artists who knew how to pass on their passion to her. She grew up surrounded by their sometimes complex but also very endearing works.

She took private lessons when she was in college and this reassured her in her choices of post-baccalaureate studies. She indeed followed the preparatory year at the University of Paris. ESAG where she learned the nude, the plasters but also the flat tints. gouache on very specialized exercises. Then she tried to Fine Arts at Paris, but she recognizes that her work was not mature enough to enter there. So she headed for a DEUG in Art History then left for England to do a degree in visual culture, where she studied art history. she learned to read any visual work whatever the media. She took advantage of this of these three years to launch into oil painting. oil. Alas, following a domestic accident, many of his paintings were damaged. lost. Since then she has stopped working. the practice of painting oil and she focused on her professional career which took her more time, art then finding itself relegated to the mainstream. à his hobbies.

As for the media, she likes the game of merging liquid watercolors but also adding Indian ink and even embossing to add relief.

Artistic approach

I draw a lot of inspiration from Miro and Picasso in their abstract approaches. I also paint abstract landscapes. Finally I navigate between linocut and watercolor, with lately a new approach of my art with the prolific use of oil painting. 

I discovered linocut through an artist friend who lives in the UK. I loved it straight away. I must have around forty boards. I like to engrave and then see the result with the passage of the ink, and then touch up the plate if necessary. I have floral, plant, animal, orthodox church, marine motifs, etc.

In 2022 I started again; watercolor, painting mainly abstract landscapes and other more figurative ones, your choice! Indian ink is an integral part of many of my works. Especially when she absorbs the watercolor! I love the effects that come from it!

In 2023, I launched into pastels, with the drawing of Art Nouveau-type floral motifs, moving nudes and a series of landscapes and also vanities.

Today I'm trying my luck again with oil painting. Indeed, oil remains my favorite media that I had not used for over 30 years!
