About the Artist

I find great joy in the act of making art. Painting helps me fill my soul and keep me sane. When I seek to create a new painting there is no perfect outcome. A painting can’t be perfect, there is no right or wrong. I paint because I need to create. My paintings and my process are about taking my feelings and my emotions and trying to create something that I hope others can connect with. 

Over time I have realized that painting is a lot like life - not perfect. It can be a lot easier to take a risk in a painting and if I make a  mistake, I can paint over it and start again.  My painting process is relatable to my life.  In both my paintings and my life I’m trying not to dwell on mistakes but to keep painting until those layers can turn into something better.

I just try to keep my focus on the process or the act of making art and creating something to share with the world. I hope that my art can have an impact upon people and is something they can connect to in their own lives. Hopefully it serves as a reminder to see the beauty in the process, but it’s also ok if people just see my work as something pretty to hang above their couch. Either way I’m going to keep creating work.

Allison has a BFA from Ohio University with an emphasis in painting, studied art in Prague, CZ and has a Masters in Art Education from the University of Toledo.  Previously, Allison taught painting and drawing at Toledo School for the Arts and classes at the Toledo Museum of Art. 

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


"Teaching, raising three kids, and life have all pulled me away from my work at times.  It feels good to be able to make time to focus on something that is such an important part of who I am."

When not in her Art Studio you will find Allison working out, training others, watching her two daughters compete in dance, or at her son's basketball games.  

Allison and her husband met studying art in Prague, Czech Republic in the late 90's. They have three children and two dogs.


Time Lapse Videos

One of the styles I enjoy painting in is similar to pointillism where I apply thousands and thousands of little brush strokes on top of one another. This layering of brush strokes plays with color combinations and creates movement in my images.  Here are time-lapse videos of two recent paintings with this technique.  The other series of work I have been developing are more graphic where I build layers of underpaintings, sanding between layers, and then applying large graphic images to create a push and pull of color and space.
