Allison Swan is inspired by the beauty in nature and paints in an Expressive style in oil. Allison is a Virginia Beach native. Her work is infused with a love of the Virginia Tidewater where sandy beaches of the Atlantic and Chesapeake Bay, creeks, rivers, forests, marshes, and mudflats that were the playground of her youth are now her peace and inspiration today.
“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.”
