Alison Craig has drawn and painted all her life. She took a degree in Fine Art at NEWI (now Glyndwr University) in 2005, since when she has worked full-time as a visual artist. She received a Diploma in Professional Printmaking from Yale College (now Coleg Cambria) in 2007. She has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad, and is a founder member of the “Helfa Gelf” North Wales Open Studios Network.
Her painting and printmaking reflect her relationship with the natural world, using colour and gestural marks to convey a sense of place. Driven by the sense of continuity inherent within the landscape, she investigates the persistence of the human spirit across time, using the things we can see to hint at what lies underneath. Fragmentary, reworked images of stones and found objects; field boundaries, watercourses; things seen and unseen are fed into the whole to form work which may be read on more than one level.
