Madonna and Onions by Christine Allison

Madonna and Onions by Christine Allison


Mill Lane,
Lyme Regis,


In her latest exhibition well-known Lyme Regis artist Christine Allison continues to draw inspiration from the natural world but executes her paintings in two very different ways, one realistic; the other abstracted. She portrays the bonds between domestic animals and their humans in realistic, sensitive and perceptive portraits in oil paint. In contrast, inspired by her garden, she creates curious, colourful, abstracted oil paintings, some tiny, some large, which at times resemble richly embroidered textiles or perhaps crazy dreams. Christine is running 6 workshops during her exhibition on themes extracted from her book 'Drawing: techniques and tutorials for the complete beginner', reprinted this year by The Guild of Master Craftsman Publications. Suitable for all abilities, contact her at for booking information.
