Photography is a world of light and color; and when you add texture, it is a world Allyson has loved since childhood.
Growing up in the suburbs of New York brought the city to her fingertips. People, lights, sound and movement always fascinated Allyson. The pace and energy of worldwide metropolitan cities remain one of her favorite subjects. And, her work further reflects the water and nature that were part of youthful summer memories of time spent on Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard. You might say her work has been evolving forever.
She attended the University of Rhode Island majoring in Textiles, Merchandising, and Design. This program offered her the opportunity to study Interior Design at The Studio Arts Center International in Florence, Italy through the Cleveland Institute of Art. In Florence she was assigned the task of taking an ordinary object and recreating it as an unpredictable object. There was so much design surrounding her in Italy and suddenly she saw the textures of Pirelli tires as a coffee percolator. From that moment Allyson began viewing everyday objects from a different perspective.
Now she seeS the world around HER beyond the naked eye. Her work varies. Some images are clean and crisp and yet create depth with the ordinary layers of life. Other images often are quite complex, leaving the guesswork up to the observer. There is an underlying consistency throughout Allyson’s work that evokes light, texture, color and movement, connecting the past with the present.
Expressing herself through photography, she has been given the opportunity to combine her passions for the arts, design and travel.
Allyson works with interior designers and art consultants from all over the United Sates. Her work can be found in local home furnishing stores in NY, CT, NJ and FL. She also exhibits at the Architectural Digest Design Show IN NYC.
