Born in Zimbabwe, Alison studied fine arts and graphic design before moving to London in the 80's where she worked for a top tier advertising agency. With these foundations her unique style took hold and radiates throughout her work to this present day. She moved to Australia in the 90's and a mother to three beautiful children. She now lives in her beautiful Art Studio in the Byron Bay hinterland.
The paintings of mixed media artist Alison Coulthurst remain highly sought after by art collectors through out the globe. Building upon her huge success in Sydney, Alison's work has been exhibited in Europe, Africa, United Arab Emirates, New Zealand and through out Australia.
Her works explore many techniques including sgraffito and even application by hand resulting in multiple rich layers displayed in each artwork.
Alison has recently returned from two successful solo exhibitions in France and Italy, with works painted while living and painting in the French wine countryside. Excited and inspired, Alison has finished a new body of works called "there are no ordinary moments"
Alison's inspiration is love ...she paints with her soul .....
"I love life
Life pleads for our participation
life cries for us to experience
if we choose to waver from this path
and constantly reject these appealing requests
we then forfeit the true experience of oneness we all seek ..... love!
So be a part of life
and embrace your journey and along the way view touch smell hear and most importantly feel with your soul the many flowerings of love you will surely come across
if your choice is to live and love life!"
