Paint Annapolis is on the way! Learn more about the juried artists and get yourself ready for this historic Plein air painting festival. 

Alison is a Plein air painter who has recently settled in southern Maryland. As a part of a Navy family, she moved around the country many times throughout her life and has been inspired by the different terrains, lights, and architecture she was encountered at each new place.

This has led to her overall philosophy that subject matter and location are irrelevant: composition, design, and paint handling are everything.

She does not have any formal training outside of occasional classes and workshops – notably with Rob Liberace, Robin Weiss, and John Poon – and participating in various drawing groups including a portrait co-op at Maryland Hall in Annapolis, MD.

Her goal has always been to paint outside and from life as much as possible and to learn something new with each painting.
