Inspired by the colors, forms and movement of her surroundings, Alison Dougherty channels her love of nature and curiosities for truth in order to evoke feelings of nostalgia and wonder in her work. Her methods are both simple and technical, using just paint or mixed media to execute her projects.
An artist since childhood, Alison was born and raised in the quaint coastal town of Carmel California, where the beautiful beaches along the famously Scenic Highway 1 and pastoral river valley nestled into the towering Santa Lucia range, were her influential playground until moving to the Pacific NW in 2001.
Alison is constantly experimenting with new concepts, ideas and methods. She paints in a range of energy. From large forced brushstrokes and impactful sgraffito style scribbling to a meditative-like calmness placing deliberate strokes of color with various tools and an ever evolving pallet.
She is the owner of OUTLIER GALLERY a mobile art space she built inside a step van. Inside here she shows her work pop-up style.
