Alison Jardine Artist Bio:

Artist's Statement At the edge of representation we find the patterns that comprise the underlying structures, colors, and light available to our biological and intellectual process of vision, and these fascinate me. My art at its core reflects my own life. My fascination with nature and light began among the dappled sunlight of the ancient forests of Yorkshire and the clear blue, wide-open wilderness of the Moors where I was born and grew up, and this forged my visual and artistic identity. I now live and work in hot, sunny Texas with its intense, bright light that coaxes brilliant colors and highly contrasted shadow from the creeks and trees it envelops. Any artist's work reflects their own environment, and mine exists exactly where I do: within nature, and inevitably within the digital media that surrounds us, and both these worlds are made of light, the unifying motif of my artworks. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Biography Born and educated in Yorkshire and London, England, I arrived in Texas in 2003 where I began practicing as a professional artist. Since winning free studio space in Dallas through an art competition in 2009, I have worked full time as a professional artist, and I have exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally, and I recently completed my first public art piece, which is situated on Henderson Avenue in Dallas (2011-2013). My work is in the collections of institutions such as University of Wyoming, businesses such as Select Energy, and individual collectors around the world. I have written articles for art magazines, written & presented talks about aspects of art, taught art in public schools, been featured on TV, and I am the VP of a non-profit art organization.
