Allison Richter's journey though art began in her early childhood. Born in 1972 in a very small town of Stockbridge Georgia, she began learning art from her mother who had been a commercial artist for many years.
"I remember bringing my drawings to my mother to see what she thought. I always admired the things she could draw at the drop of a hat. I would give her the drawing, and she would use tracing paper to show me where to make corrections or start over. Then she would crumple up the tracing paper, and tell me to try again. I found it very frustrating at the time, but I believe it made my technical skills all for the better."
Allison studied art in high school with Gregg Green, then studied with Tommy Daughtry at Clayton State for her fine arts. A bit of changing majors from fine art to commercial art, then to interactive design gave Allison a large variety of skills, views of how to perceive layout, and design.
During her college years, Allison painted commercially doing large murals along business walls inside and out. She gained entry into fine art competitions, as well as gaining a few clients that loved her work.
After college, Allison chose to try a few different mediums. Everything from digital art, colored pencil, pen and ink, to scratch board with water color. Eventually she would gravitate back to oils as her preferred method of creating 2 dimensional art.
Allison's current work has taken her to an interest in Roseate Spoonbills. Her fascination with the subject matter is to the viewers benefit. If you are interested in her art, please look through her gallery.
