About the Artist

Allison Gordon grew up in Michigan. She spent several years in Colorado where she studied English and Art.

Shortly after completing her degree, she dealt with the loss of a close family member. To try to come to terms with the swirl of emotions inside of her, she began to paint swirls onto a canvas. She strove to convey the chaos and unpredictability of this time by using heavy strokes, deep charcoal lines, and brightly-colored streaks. This evolved into her method of painting scenes that converge nature and abstraction. Now, those swirls signify hope.

Her work has been displayed throughout Colorado. Most recently, she was a featured artist at the Third Friday Art Walk at Golden Belt Arts in Durham, North Carolina.

Allison lives and works in North Carolina.
