Since graduating from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Furniture Design Alison's work has developed and diversified and the relationship of nature to the built environment is a key theme.
Whilst working in many different materials, her preference is for the sustainable and natural, for example: clay, wood, paper, glass and enamel. However, she also works with processed materials such as plastic- laminates and vinyls. Her overall aim in to humanise the built environment and help people to feel a connection with the palces that they live and work in a subtle and very natural way.
