Alison Cook - Artist and illustrator
Alison is an Artist and designer who’s work is inspired by the rural surroundings on her doorstep, together with close up details of Plants and flowers.
She studied Textile Design at Chelsea School of Art and her drawings and paintings have a strong textile feel.
Using mixed media, her observations of the landscape become woven knits of pattern, colour and line. She often sketches ‘en plein air’ on small postcards creating a visual diary. These then evolve to form abstracted studies or richly coloured landscapes.
Alison’s earlier career in Creative Services and store environments for Premium Fashion Retail Brands enabled her to develop a strong commercial eye. Working collaboratively with Artists and Makers from many disciplines her work included window concepts, visual merchandising and interior styling. She has lived in New York where she was Head of Creative Services for DKNY and has produced commissions in Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Harrods.
Adapting proportion and scale, Alison can produce works for bespoke projects, commissions and site specific artworks for commercial or residential clients.
