Scottish artist Allison Young, originally from Stirling, attended Edinburgh College of Art. She graduated with First Class Honours and undertook a Postgraduate Diploma which included a scholarship to the Netherlands. Allison then spent a year at Łódź School of Art in Poland. She currently works and resides in Edinburgh, frequently travelling to Tiree and East Lothian to sketch and gather reference material.
Sand and sea surrounded by vast, shifting skies are Allison’s main inspiration. Her paintings are simply of places that make her happy.
Working in both oil and acrylic on canvas, Allison has a variety of methods in her process, from quick, thick brushstrokes that are suddenly transformed into a fast tide crashing upon the shore to delicate thin applications of paint that mimic the wisps of cloud scattered across the reddening sky at dawn.
