Alison Percy is a visual artist living near the Murray River in Albury on the border of NSW and Victoria. Working in the creative industries has been Percy’s life. She completed an Associate Diploma in Visual Arts while training as a graphic designer in a fast paced advertising art department.
Percy has developed a diverse range of skills over her career. Her eye for detail and passion for all things art, design and colour has seen her tutor Illustration, Design and Visual Arts at Wodonga Institute of TAFE to Painting and Life Drawing at Murray Art Museum Albury.
Percy’s energetic and passionate nature reflects across landscape, floral and figurative works which varies from a loose and instinctive mark to one that is highly considered. Intuitive use of fluid line initiates an honest connection through the artist and onto the surface using ink, charcoal, acrylic and gouache onto linen and paper.
After 36 years working as a designer, interior design consultant and calligrapher, she took a leap of faith in October 2018 to focus solely on her visual arts practice – which has opened the door to residencies, awards plus ongoing exhibitions, private sales and commissions. Her first solo was in May 2015 and she’s just opened her tenth in March 2020!
