Coinciding with the art therapies offered to patients at the hospice, Alison’s own design was as a result of the calming and meditative release that is produced through doodling in the evenings after the busy and chaotic nature of everyday life. The bold and vibrant nature of her design provides a release from everyday life which pushes the boundaries of acceptability by producing art that is beautiful in its individuality. Her design excited joint sponsors, chartered accountants Alexandra Durrant and Richard Place Dobson, to celebrate their new partnership as their two businesses start to amalgamate.
Alison loves using a combination of water, paint inks and various media to produce art that is both unique and magical. In her designs, she carefully considers her audience and will often add in layers of items that are personal to them.
