Hey, it's me! Alison...
Nice to see you and thanks for stopping by to check out all about me.
My name is Alison and I make stuff.
See more examples of my creative pieces here.
Quite often I make a mess but usually what I make ends up looking pretty darn good, even if I do say so myself.
With a background in marketing and a future in art and craft, I like to think of myself as a bit of a creative spirit, with a hint of organised thought and a few excel spreadsheets thrown in for good measure.
First and foremost, I am an artist. I mainly stick with crochet as that is my first love (closely followed by my children and husband) however I am happy to turn my hand to any craft that is required to ensure the end result is well, as it should be.
My inspiration comes from nature. Nature makes me happy. Flowers, the ocean, trees, seasons, birds.... the list is endless and when I am around nature, I am calm. When I'm not I am probably a little crazy so best to be holding a twig when you come and visit!
I like to use crochet as an art form, to create pieces that connect with nature and also appeal on an emotional level through the use of texture and colour. Wellness is high on my priority list and I love the way that my work connects with communities, instilling a sense of love, happiness and inner calm. To create a space that people can just enjoy and forget about the rest of the mess in their lives; the unfinished work deadline, the crying bub, the money worries... just sit for a few minutes, take a few deep breaths and enjoy the colour and where it takes you.
Stress less, craft more.
