ALISON SHERROW | MIXED MEDIA ARTIST & PHOTOGRAPHER
"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures."
-Henry Ward Beecher
I give new life to discarded vintage books and paper ephemera through art!
My paintings are emotive pieces that aim to immerse the viewer in a tranquil experience and awaken the appreciation of the beauty found in nature. Ephemera and paper scraps from vintage books are used throughout my painting process, lending a nostalgic nod to the past.
During the mid 1980's I attended photography school in Rhode Island and years later became self-taught in the digital photography format. While traveling throughout rural areas of the country I photographed landscapes and barns while selling prints online. I also trained with accomplished encaustic artists to learn the art of painting with molten wax. Most recently, I began working with acrylics, a medium that allows me more freedom to experiment with my artistic voice while fulfilling my desire to create one of a kind original pieces.
My subject matter is and has always been primarily landscapes. I spend a lot of time in the outdoors and this is what fuels the inspiration for my work.
I paint intuitively, in a semi-abstract style. This relaxed method of painting produces a calm and at ease feeling that mirrors my response when I spend time in nature. My wish is to evoke a similar emotion in those who view my work.
