Born in Dumfries, Scotland, Alison studied at Edinburgh College of Art under Elizabeth Blackadder, Sir Robin Philipson and Harry More Gordon. Following graduation her career flourished in illustration and animation for Oscar nominated “Fireman Sam” and “AArdman Animations”. Alison now draws her inspiration from her highland home. Her paintings, oil on canvas, are normally produced in Alison’s studio but the main work takes place in the landscape.
Alison has exhibited in Edinburgh, Perth, Moray, Bristol and Glastonbury. Her commissions include Dire Straits, Peter Gabriel and the Royal Bank of Scotland.
