Alison Stafford

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 and my facebook page,
