Meet Alison Percy

Alison Percy, MAMA Art Tutor, in her studio

Alison's work reflects a fascination in the balance and sensitivity of fluid line inspired by natural forms across figurative, landscape and floral subjects. Imagery is formed using ink, charcoal, acrylic paint, soft pastel and watercolour onto canvas and paper. A quiet energy is felt during mark making, allowing the work to take on a layered and reflective journey. Intuitive use of fluid line and colour evokes an honest connection through the artist and onto the surface.

Alison's energetic and passionate nature is evident across her work. It reflects a delight in transforming observations, captured or remembered images into figurative, landscape or floral works. Alison produces paintings and drawings for exhibition, private sale and commission.

As a tutor, students are encouraged to relax and enjoy the journey - while exploring their individual style and learning to really see.
