From her earliest experiments in art Alison has found the variety and beauty of the human form endlessly fascinating; for her the human element is vital. Following a course in Ceramic Sculpture at teaching college, Alison became committed to 3D work. In subsequent years whilst working as a teacher and raising children, she kept her passion for sculpture alive: developing her skills in ceramics, cold-casting, stone and wood-carving; making, selling and exhibiting; always persisting with the life drawing which gave her inspiration. In 2011, she graduated from Brighton University with a degree in Art and Design (3D Materials Practice). She now works from her studio in Brighton Open Market creating sculpture in clay, wood and stone for sale, commission and exhibition. The fluid, sensuous forms are the product of her lifelong fascination with the human figure, realised through a ‘hands-on’ response to the organic materials she uses.
