Alison Lowe is known by her peers as an “artist’s artist”. Her energy and charisma towards the creative process is at the heart of her art. Whether painting, drawing, or creating Mixed Media….it’s the link between process and emotion that connects all of her work. Alison grew up in Livingston, New Jersey and attended the George Washington University where she was a dual major of Fine Art and Art History. After graduation she moved out to California and spent 10 years engrossed in Plein-Air painting as well as American Impressionism. She gives credit to such notable teachers as Joseph Mendez and Peggi Kroll-Roberts as well as her mentor and dear friend, Corinne Hartley. While her children were young, she decided to study with contemporary artist George Small, whose studio was down the street.
It was there where her artistic interest opened up to new subjects and new media. She has a deep interest in the spiritual and energetic fields that are within each of us and hopes to convey this through her art. Alison takes her art seriously, but not herself. She is the eternal optimist. Other than her art, Alison is deeply committed to her family, friends, community and spiritual practice. Regardless of the medium she is working with, her love of nature and the human form is evident. She approaches all of her work with the principles of art: shape, value, color, line, scale and composition.
Alison is represented by the TAG Gallery located at the Bergamot Station Arts Complex in Santa Monica, California.
“I am constantly amazed at how each piece seems to “come together” and make sense. Learning to let go and trust my instincts feels like I am truly honoring myself. Creating art allows me to feel free! I get lost in a sea of luscious color and shapes. It’s exciting, relaxing, and sometimes frustrating, but it makes me feel alive!”
