Born in Melbourne, and currently living in the Macedon Ranges region of Victoria Australia. Allison works full time as a registered nurse in a busy metropolitan hospital and paints in her spare time. "Painting was initially a bereavement therapy after the loss of my son and I now create in a small studio space – ‘Little Leif Studio’ – in his memory. The diverse Australian landscape is a constant source of inspiration – the big sky and land ever-changing with the weather and seasons. I am especially drawn to the rolling hills, wide open fields and tree-covered mountains of my surroundings."
