Allison Swan - Coastal VA Plein Air Artist

Allison Swan is inspired by the beauty in nature and paints in an Expressive Realist style in oil. She is predominantly self-taught, but has studied with local and nationally known artists. Allison paints wherever she travels, and her work is infused with a love of the Virginia Tidewater, Eastern Shore, California, Costa Rica, and Europe. “My art reflects my feeling that even when you are given challenges in life, there is always beauty and joy surrounding you in the colors of the sky, the reflections on the water, and the shadows cast at first and last light. My hope is to faithfully bring the awe of that moment to my paintings If you have a challenge or something taken away, there is always a gift or talent to replace it.”
