Alison graduated in Graphic Design in 1990 and now works as a professional illustrator and printmaker from her studio in Milton. She designs primarily for the stationery industry, mainly for award winning card publishers Phoenix Trading. She has also licensed designs to Green Pebble and Artist’s Cards. Her printmaking work continues to be inspired by patterns in nature; from skeletal winter trees to close-up studies of seed heads and the birds she sees on her daily dog walks.
She is often asked to run printmaking workshops and is registered with the ‘Artists in Schools’ scheme. She is a selected member of Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale and has participated in Cambridge Open Studios every year since 1996. She sells her prints and cards to many shops and galleries around the country, local ones include Cambridge Contemporary Crafts, the Rachel Dormor Gallery and Babylon Gallery, Ely.
Alison also has her own popular range of screen-printed tea towels and coasters featuring her designs and is pleased to supply Anglesey Abbey and Wicken Fen National Trust Shops.
