About the Artist


Allison grew up in San Antonio, Texas, and picked up her first paintbrush at the age of 10. She continued to draw and paint throughout childhood, eventually majoring in art at The University of Redlands. After receiving her BFA, she took her interests a step further by earning a design degree from Platt College in San Diego, CA. With two degrees under her belt, she moved back to Texas to pursue a career in the art world, living and working in Austin. Since 2002, Allison has accomplished more than most working artists her age. A few interesting facts…

Sponsored by Gibson Guitars, and chosen by the Mayor of Austin and Willie Nelson to name a few, her guitar was featured on billboards, phonebooks and has since been published in a book. “A Taste of Texas Tunes” was auctioned off in October of 2007, to benefit local charities. The closing bid was $16,800 and the guitar now resides in the Frost Bank building, in downtown Austin
