“I am a self taught artist, and I am currently painting a wide range of modern style landscapes, seascapes and familiar objects within my self-titled ‘New Wave’ Collection. I am inspired by the reflections of light upon water and colour; and especially the intense warm light of the Algarve, where my studio is based.
I love the rich buttery texture of acrylic paint; preferring to prepare my own art boards; and I create modern ‘tablet’ style paintings with a hidden frame which are particularly suited to a modern decor.
My art will always contain a representational focal point – a boat, nesting storks, a path to the beach – which is then enhanced by an almost abstract series of ‘waves’ of colour and shape – allowing the viewer to bring their own imagination to the picture.”
Alyson also undertakes commissions for Pet and House Portraits, and loves the challenge of capturing something of the personality of your pet alongside delivering a lifelike portrait for you to treasure.
Alyson is available for private commissions and her work can be viewed at her home studio by appointment or purchased online via her website.
