Alison lives in Salisbury. She is both an artist and musician, and each informs the other. She has a keen eye for the different and quirky: her stone carvings and linoprints have a light hearted appeal, but she also enjoys looking deep into a subject for longer term projects, such as her Evensong series. The medium depends on the subject – she works in oils, watercolour, pastels, prints, 3D  construction, and carving.

Small insignificancies in her surroundings often spark new ideas. Music, musicians and instruments provide a wealth of subject matter. Her portraits have been commissioned to celebrate scholarship or exam achievements, as CD covers and for significant birthday or family occasions.
