Alison moved to Quindalup in 2003 and lives right across the road from the ocean.
It is wonderful to be able to see how classic and perfected her work has become since she began but also rather incredible to see how there seems to be a common connection between rock, fossils and the natural environment.
Alison also showed us her ‘Tideline’ series. She loves to play around with the idea of fossils and tribalites, shell fragments that are attached to the piece and turned into what look like fossils. It’s the concept of a flocculated slip sticking to an ordinary piece of slab. It has taken years for Alison to perfect this technique.
Alison has received commissions to do some wonderful public pieces and architectural installations which feature at the Fiona Stanley Child Research Centre, Crown Casino as well as having some well-known solo exhibitions.
