Name: Alison Dickson


Alison, born in 1961, originally from Northern Ireland where she grew up on the family farm, has lived in Edinburgh for 23 years. Her work is in collections throughout the UK and further afield, including that of Michael McIntyre, comedian. Paintings have been selected for the RSA (Royal Scottish Academy) and RSW (Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour) annual exhibitions. She had a 35-piece sell out solo exhibition, ‘Breathing Space’, in Enniskillen and followed this up with a second in London. She was thrilled that her work was selected for first prize in a recent exhibition, giving her the fantastic opportunity of a residency at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in October 2016 and February 2017. The centre is dedicated to supporting and facilitating creativity, together with the stimulation of living alongside other artists from all disciplines, enabling a rich cross-fertilization of ideas.

‘I take much inspiration from the natural world. I love to escape to the country, coast and wild places. The contrasting shapes, colours and marks on the land, sea, sand and sky and the effects of changing weather and light are a constant inspiration. In my still-life paintings, it is the simplicity and subtlety of line and colour that are important.’
