Alison Green, was born in Cambridge but now lives and works in North Devon. Living in the Devon countryside, surrounded by farmland, with Exmoor and the coast on her doorstep, she has all the inspiration she needs for painting animals.Dogs have always been a part of Alison’s life. At the moment she has five, four rough Collies and a Cocker Spaniel, some of whom she has painted. Alison is completely self-taught, studying the works and techniques of the old masters that she greatly admires. She has spent time in the company of renowned dog artist Mick Cawston, whose influence has proved invaluable. Alison paints animal portraiture ranging from pets to wildlife, specialising in Dog Portraiture. Alison’s ability to capture the character and personality of each subject comes from a great love and knowledge of dogs.
