Alison specialises in handmade original prints in a variety of methods: screenprints, etchings/aquatint and linocuts. The focus is on animal characters with a dose of humour, brought alive by her enviable skill in her printmaking craft.
In the main, Alison is a known as a printmaker, although she has had commissions in bronze. Studying at Newcastle University, she completed her BA (Hons) in Fine Art and whilst studying was one of several Northern graduates chosen to exhibit in the Royal College of Art.
"I chose printmaking as my medium as soon as I was allowed in the print room during my time at Newcastle University, where I studied for my first degree in Fine Art. My degree led me to Lincoln University where I spent the next nine years in my ideal job running the Printmaking Workshop."
Alison now lives and works in Lincoln.
