Alison was born in Australia in 1946. As a child she learned sewing and embroidery skills which have become the basis of her lifelong interest in textile and fibre art. For more than 30 years her original works have been inspired by landscape structures, processes and resulting patterning of textures.
Alison's work is regularly selected for prestigious exhibitions within Australia and overseas, and is held in several private and public collections. She accepts commissions; occasionally teaches and writes magazine articles; and maintains a blog or virtual visual diary.
