Exhibition of Seascapes by Artist Alison Kaye Fowler

Alison is a Welsh Contemporary Artist based in South West Wales. Having graduated with Honours from a Fine Art-Painting Degree at The University of Wales, Cardiff in 2005, Alison is now focussed full time on her career as a painter.
Alison has always been passionate about materials, constantly using a variety of different mediums to create interesting and exciting outcomes that may not always be completely controlled. She spent her time in University experimenting and exploring various media and during this time became incredibly involved with the materials she uses today such as, varnish, wood dyes, gloss and matt paints, acrylic paints, glues, charcoal and pastels.
On returning to Pembrokeshire in 2006, Alison now concentrates on the beautiful and ever-changing coastlines of West Wales, creating highly textured and evocative seascapes; fascinated by the unique light qualities Pembrokeshire has to offer.
In 2015 Alison travelled to Iceland and experienced colours and landscapes that were as breath taking as her homelands’ and was inspired to create a whole new collection of paintings based on these experiences. In early 2016 Alison was also inspired to paint using a completely new palette of colours on returning to Wales from the Caribbean where she visited beaches and coastline that was different in many ways to the rugged shores of the West Wales coastline. The vivid blues of the sea and virtually white sands lent itself to an interesting complementary collection to her earlier Icelandic studies.
