Allison is a Pacific Northwest native, born and raised in Oregon with an appreciation for the beautiful outdoors, changing seasons, and hydrating weather. The colors and patterns in nature inspire most of her artwork, and she often uses trees, flowers, fruit and vegetable themes in her art and paper-cut cards. Allison has been drawing since she was a toddler, and truly enjoys creativity and expression in many forms.
Allison attended college in the wheat fields of eastern Washington at Walla Walla University where she completed her BA degree in Illustration. During the summers between college years, Allison taught painting, drawing and ceramics at Big Lake Youth Camp in central Oregon, and also volunteered as an art instructor at Maude Kerns Art Center in Eugene, Oregon. Working creatively with kids and young adults is Allison's passion and joy! The opportunity to teach art is fulfilling and exciting especially as an avenue to share art history, explore new styles, and ignite the passion for art in each of her students.
Allison is pleased to be inspiring young artists as part of the Museo Art Academy team!
