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.
David Diaz is a Plein air painting who works in oil and pastels and currently lives in Annapolis, MD. He received his undergraduate degree at Frostburg State University as well as formal training at the University of Maryland, Towson University, and Catholic University.
