Alison is an artist living in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her art career began at a young age and she has always enjoyed creating art. She graduated from Calvin College in 2011, with a BA in Spanish, a BA in Recreational Therapy and Minors in Art and Psychology. She currently works for a Christian NGO called The Association For a More Just Society. She loves to travel, play piano, and create art. Her studies focus on drawing, painting, and using old materials to create something new. . . . . "I enjoy painting and creating art about subjects that I love and my work involves a variety of themes such as my interpretations of nature, justice, past experiences that I have had, or future aspirations and dreams that I wish to pursue. I also enjoy creating from used materials to make something beautiful out of what used to be junk. I love to explore various ideas and topics that challenge every day thinking and I dream of a world that works together to truly seek justice."
