Trick or Treat!

Fall Color

Yesterday I took full advantage of the windy, wet weather we’ve been having: I took a walk and admired the trees in my neighborhood, collected some fallen leaves, and had a cozy evening with my sketchbook. Aren’t those wet leaves lovely against the asphalt? They’re coppery and luminous in the right light.

Hello there! My name is Allison, and I’m delighted that you’re here.  An Illustrated History is a work-in-progress, an attempt to document my creative life, a tentative record. To begin, I thought I’d offer this little watercolor collage that I made a few months ago. In case you’re wondering, the little bird stamp comes from this Martha Stewart kit.

Stay tuned for more!
