Alison J Gilbert

I am an abstract mixed media artist and painter, loving living by the sea on the south coast of England, and with a training and background in textile design. The textile background influences a primary focus on abstract colour, pattern and texture rather than figurative imagery. Work is created intuitively, with perhaps only an emotion, a colour palette and/or a motif, being the catalyst for inspiration. I am also often inspired by the power of a word or a phrase that may, or may not, end up visible in the finished piece, but which often gives the work its meaning.

Over time I have developed a unique, expressive personal style, incorporating a selective use of mixed media techniques, along with the more traditional paints and glazes. I aim to create work that makes a strong visual statement as a whole, and also has richly layered surfaces full of depth and visual interest close to. I create work in a full range of sizes from 10cm to 120cm+

On my website you will find collections of original, abstract artworks that are a vibrant celebration of joy and life, expressed through colour, pattern and texture. A piece of original art is something personal and unique for you to enjoy every day.  My art enhances and enriches its environment, whether that be a home or a public/commercial space, and evokes an emotional response in the viewer, it can be restful or energising, calming or cheerful, but always uplifting.

I hope you enjoy browsing and find something that resonates personally with you
