M. Allison is a Houston native. She has been painting and showing her work for over 25 years.
M. Allison received her formal training at the University of Houston and the McNay Art Institute in San Antonio. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Commercial Art and has used her background and experience in graphic design as an integral design factor in her works.
She usually begins each piece (quite often on black canvas) with a simple pencil sketch without a great amount of detail, allowing the actual painting to evolve in emotion and sensuality favoring deep exotic depth, light and shadow. Her styles are varied in subject matter and painting techniques and range from portrayals to impressionism to abstract often combining them.
She derives as much pleasure from painting an abstract as she does a realistic piece. A great majority of her work is loose, splashy and uncontrived allowing the viewer to develop his or her own unique interpretation of the painting.
Her extensive travels throughout Latin America and France are reflected in her images. Her works are shown in several galleries in western United States as well as private collections.
