We are excited to have local painter Alison Parham's work in the store in September! We hope to see you at the opening on Friday, September 5, 2014 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM!
About The Artist
Alison Parham is a watercolorist who grew up in Santa Cruz. In 1978 she and her family moved to Felton and in 2001 moved to Bonny Doon. Painting with watercolors began in 1999 with local artist Linda Lord and Elizabeth Kincaid. Since childhood, Alison has enjoyed color, drawing and photography. She admires the works of A. Fox and Maxfield Parrish. Her inspiration comes from the imperfections that occur in nature and everyday life. She uses salt often to help create drama in her paintings.
Alison has participated in Open Studios. She has shown her work at art and wine festivals in Capitola, Scotts Valley, local holiday fairs, Santa Cruz County Fair, the Doon Art Tour, and she’s looking forward to being a part of the 2014 Open Studios in October (she will be hosted at Santa Cruz Gardens).
