Alison grew up on the north shore of Massachusetts and received her BFA in painting from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She also spent time studying fine art in the Netherlands, art history in China and bio-art in Puerto Rico. Traveling between physical landscapes and cultures often feels like time travel, an idea that greatly impacted her mentality as an artist. Blurry becomes the boundary between the direct and theatrical, normal and bizarre, modern and nostalgic. Imagery forms from observations, studies, memories and dreams. Since moving to New York, she’s enjoyed teaching art as well as collaborating with other artists, including fashion and street art. Alison’s work engages viewers with curious forms and bright colors, encouraging them to consider their material interaction with the modern environment.
