Hello, and a very warm welcome to my website.
I am a mixed media artist who trained originally as a textile designer. I’ve worked variously as a buyer in the fashion industry, in conferencing, and most importantly throughout as a parent of two now adult children, but in recent years have returned to my first love of hands on creating. I am at my happiest in a messy studio surrounded by an array of fabric, threads, papers, ink and paint, and my work process tends to be spontaneous and intuitive.
(I also love living by the sea in what is officially the sunniest town in the UK on the South Coast of England!)
I will be blogging here from time to time on new works completed, works in progress, other artists and also many different things that inspire me, feel free to follow me here, on twitter, instagram and/or Tumblr and come along for the ride.
I will also be exhibiting all my latest creations both in the mixed media painting gallery and in the craft gallery. Most of the items in the galleries are available for sale in my shop or in my Etsy shop AlisonJGilbertArt.
I would also love to hear from you so if you are interested please feel free to message or comment (within the subjects and framework of this site)
Thank you for visiting……
