Alison completed her Fine Art Degree in 2010 when she made large soft sculptures, knitted and crocheted from copper wire and fishing line and stitched water soluble fabric. Since then she has evolved this work into functional and decorative mixed media 3D forms whilst continuing to develop her 2D seascapes.
Alison runs textile workshops for Embroiderers Guild, West Country Embroiderers, Petroc and the Burton Gallery.– please ring if you are interested.
Alison uses fabric, paper, thread, wire and found objects to create collages and abstract forms that hint at the familiar. Her work is largely influenced by the sea and attempts to convey its atmosphere and essence.
