Embroidery / Brodwaith
Alison is inspired by the texture, light and patterns in the natural world, aiming to capture a fleeting moment or a memory in each piece. Drawing with a basic sewing machine directly onto her silk paintings, building layers of colourful textures she creates richly detailed studies. Her work is a result of years of exploring the strengths and restrictions of the machine and making her marks by experimentation.
Alison studied Embroidery at Goldsmiths College, she is an author and international tutor and has exhibited widely in the UK, Australia, NZ, USA and Europe.
