  • Biography
Man’s relationships within the physical stuff of our environment, the forces that contain and support us, and our interactions within them both noumenal and phenomenal are central to my work, both looking back through time and forward to the future. As a result my work is deeply rooted in Nature, finding in the natural world both inspiration and much of my visual language. As an Artist and Biologist I have a deep and rich sense of our belonging within the natural world I use many media to communicate this sense of harmony while acknowledging the danger of our current position within the earth’s ecosystems
During a career as a Landscape Architect, Alison turned gradually to Fine Art training with artists in the USA, Asia and the UK. She now works from her Edinburgh Studio.
