Hello, my name is
...Alison. I live in Canberra, Australia. I started learning to draw just over two years ago after stumbling across Danny Gregory's book, the Creative License. No sooner had I started, than a series of memory paintings (on my Scribbles Adagio blog) of my first 10 years in Scotland, began 'falling onto the page'. Now I have nearly done 100 of these. They capture all sorts of happenings and musings that could never be caught in family photographs. I also joined Julie Oakley in her year-long project to 'take some exercise everyday and stop along the way to do a sketch' (on my Five K Radius blog). Through that I learned that there's always something to draw and to do it quickly and in public. I also got fit and returned to my childhood habit of cycling everywhere. I also like making books, art quilting and contemporary embroidery.
