My background is Fashion and Textiles, and to that end I bring a real sense of colour to my paintings. Having painted as a hobby for several years, I decided to take the plunge and paint pretty much full time. My mediums of choice are Acrylic and Oil, and I really enjoy trying to capture a bit of drama from my subject. I have painted several landscapes and seascapes, but my bulk of work is animal portraits. I have exhibited with the Association of Animal Artists, and am currently in the middle of a new project – a Doggy A-Z! I have had an enormous response from people that want their dog included, and for the purpose of this exercise I am using Acrylics and experimenting with new techniques. I hope that the 26 paintings will be exhibited at the end of the year, but updates of my work can be found on my website www.alisonstafford.com and my facebook page, www.facebook.com/AlisonStaffordArt
