PROFILE

Alison moved to Salisbury in 2010 after family life in beautiful cathedrals such as Wells, St Paul’s Cathedral in London, and Winchester. Her love of music led to work that is inspired by classical music, choral music, the cathedral and the musicians that live and work there.

Alison did a year’s foundation in Southampton 2008 and started a Masters in Winchester but, sadly, life got in the way a month or two in. Despite that, the seeds were sown and she went on to cultivate her own path, which is more to do with subject and overall concept than which medium she uses. Often sensing music in terms of texture and shape leads her to experiment with various techniques and materials.

Alison has a great fondness for book art, including pop up books and paper engineering. 

Apart from music, Alison collects seed heads and skeletons, clocks and iPad screens, and has inherited a wealth of old electronic components; all of these she uses as a starting point to create her own take on life.

MY ART

I have always enjoyed print making and recently discovered origami tessellations, which naturally progressed to using fabric instead of paper and experimenting with its texture.

I try most prints out on fabric as well as paper and these I develop using other textiles and sewing techniques.

 “Wow! That’s good! Can I have it for my birthday?!”   Patricia R
 
"Alisons rich palette of paint, fabric and found’ materials provides a … freshness and vibrancy to this eclectic work, and if a mature piece of art can be said to be comfortable in its own skin, this can be stated confidently in praise of Alisons unique collage creations. Our pleasant challenge when observing Alisons  Evensong’ is to think what original sounds might emanate from the diverse images whether or not we are familiar with the music."   Colin H
