"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures."
-Henry Ward Beecher
"I create art with a nod to the past and with a pinch of rustic charm thrown in."
Alison Sherrow is a fine art photographer and encaustic artist based in Colorado.
Alison studied photography in Rhode Island, prior to the digital age and spent several years working with industry labs on the East Coast. After relocating to Colorado in the early 1990's, she continued her education with further studies in the world of interior design and later made the transition to digital photography. Her photographs, featuring country landscapes and barns, hang in collections across the US.
"I enjoy creating photographs that speak softly to the soul by capturing moments in time, conceived with a nod to the past and a touch of rustic, vintage charm."
In recent years, Alison trained with accomplished encaustic artists and began applying techniques of encaustic painting to new works as a way of expanding her creative talents. Her encaustic botanicals and abstract landscapes are created with soft tones and neutral palettes that mirror her photographic style.
"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
