St Paul, MN

2017 booth # 51

Allison’s abstract paintings are inspired by nostalgia for her youth, growing up near the north shore of Lake Superior.  Her work makes subtle references to the rural landscapes and experiences of living surrounded by woods, fields, river banks, and the vastness of “The Big Lake.”

Allison’s process involves lots of layering and expressive brushwork.  Her pieces contain few forms, encouraging the viewer to experience the proportions, colors, and visual texture with a sense of discovery and personal meaning.
