American Contemporary

Alison Atkins works in oil, watercolor, pastel, pencil, and mixed media collage. She began winning awards for her art at the age of eight. She received a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. Her creative endeavors took her to Europe where she earned a Master of Fine Art degree from Dominican University in Florence, Italy. This was the beginning of an artistic journey.

“I endeavor to encourage creativity in the face of adversity”

Her work has been favorably compared to many European and American post-impressionists. Her style, however, is pure Alison Atkins. Her paintings are a reflection of her life and her experiences, faithfully depicting her moods and her emotions in diverse treatments. Widely collected in the United States and in Europe, her artistic journey continues as she finds new inspiration for her art from the life around her.

“Mostly Alison paints people alone or in groups capturing them unaware in all the nakedness of their humanity. Some are happy, some are sad, some frightened others threatening. A room full of her art reveals a broad spectrum of human emotions.” – Anne Neville, The Shreveport Journal

“Alison is one of Houston’s most promising young painters. Her work has been compared to some of the leading American post-impressionists.” – The Houston Post
