An introduction...

Portrait 20 002 1 580x611 - Alison J GilbertHello,

A very warm welcome to my website, thank you so much for visiting.

Here you will find collections of new, original, contemporary art. Paintings that are a vibrant celebration of joy and life, where those elements are expressed through colour, pattern and texture. My abstract art engages with emotions, and enhances and enriches its environment. Art pieces that transform a home or public/commercial space.

Are you looking for something a bit different from the mass produced decorative wall art available in the shops? Owning a piece of original art that is personal and unique to you is something special to enjoy every day in your home, and will give you pleasure for a lifetime. It can bring a restful, peaceful feeling, or be fun, inspiring and energising. The right piece of art can set the tone and ambiance of any space.

I hope you enjoy browsing and find something that resonates personally with you. I understand that choosing a piece of orignal art can feel like a big investment, so I would love to speak with you if you would like some help selecting the perfect piece. Please get in touch here


About me:

I am a British contemporary abstract artist and painter, based in Somerset, England. With six years of art college, a degree in textile design, and may years of art making behind me, my work has evolved with a primary focus on colour, pattern and texture. My paintings are most often described as either vibrant and joyful or calm and peaceful. Work is created intuitively. A feeling, a colour palette and/or a symbol or motif, can be the catalyst for inspiration. I am also often inspired by the power of a word or a phrase. This may, or may not, end up visible in the finished piece, but still gives the work its meaning.

Over time I have developed a unique, expressive personal style. I incorporate 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, but also has richly layered surfaces full of depth and visual interest close up.

From time to time I may blog about current projects, things that inspire me, and give a sneak peek into my process behind the scenes in my studio. Please do sign up to my mailing list for advance notice of blog posts, fairs, exhibitions and new collection releases. You will only receive occasional e-mails – I promise not to overwhelm your inbox!

Enjoy browsing the shop section for that perfect piece for your home or commercial interior.
