"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures."
-Henry Ward Beecher
Hi, I'm Alison, an artist and country girl at heart who's favorite place to be is outside in nature. That's where I find my deepest peace; among the whispering pines of the rugged rocky mountains with crystal clear lakes & rivers, under the vast Colorado sky.
When I am in my studio, working with melted beeswax, painting becomes almost meditative. I become immersed in a palette of neutral earth tones carrying a subtle, sweet scent of honey. It's then that I feel a similar peace that I find in nature. My passion is to evoke a sense of peace and calm in those who view my art.
From Fine Art Photography To Encaustic Painting
Alison's art journey began in Rhode Island where she studied in the field of film photography, later becoming self-taught in the digital format. As an active photographer in the industry, her rustic and vintage inspired images became popular with art collectors across the country. Her fine art photographs are still available through her print shop.
"I enjoy creating photographs that speak softly to the soul by capturing moments in time, conceived with a nod to the past and sprinkled with a touch of rustic, vintage charm."
Today,Alison is an accomplished encaustic artist. With the desire to expand on her creative talents, she trained with skilled encaustic artists, learning the ancient technique of painting with molten beeswax. Her encaustic botanical and landscape paintings are created with soft tones and neutral palettes that mirror her photographic style, and lend a calm and relaxing atmosphere to the viewer.
"I was at once enraptured by the beauty and depth of encaustic art. My process is both exhilarating and challenging. I feel as though a part of my soul expresses itself within each painting." ~Alison Sherrow
