Painting: Passion and Process

Gallery Page - Paintings by alison

 "My paintings reflect my journey of personal growth, both physically and spiritually. With each new work comes a further understanding of myself, the world and my relationship to it.".

Standing Stone

Symbol Stone, Mixed Media Spring 2000, shown and sold at Scotvec Exhibition, Aberdeen Library

I was born early November and as a reflection of my journey though life and art, I have catalogued my paintings in the chronological years of their production from Nov-Oct.  I have not put my early work on the site as I don't feel it reflects the same depth, development and discovery that returning to study in the 2000 brought to my life. Today's work however could only have been done with the lessons I have learnt in living the early part of my life so cannot be discounted as a crucial part of my journey.
