Alison's art actually started at age four when Alison's mother would put her in the bathtub to finger paint. There was no water in the tub and Alison was fully dressed. Her clever mother did this as an act of self preservation. This way, all she would have to clean was the bathtub and Alison's clothes.
By age five, Alison was being reprimanded in kindergarten for coloring outside the lines (things haven't changed much) and started to color before the teacher said go. Alison was a natural born leader even then.
From there, it was oil painting classes after school, to sculpting at age eleven, the year her family lived in Rome, Italy. Then it was back to New York and classes at the Museum of Modern Art as well as The Five Towns Music and Art Foundation.
to college in California to study architecture and fine arts, Alison received
her BA Degree with a Concentration in Design after experiencing just about
every creative medium available to a design student, including drafting,
color theory, model building,city planning, clay 'hand building', stone
carving, sketching as well as oil and acrylic painting.
