Its a gorgeous 75 degrees and blue-sky day to start off the first day of June, and it looks like Summer is finally here to stay in Alaska. What a great way to release this month’s Artist Spotlight.
This month we are featuring Palmer local Allison Estergard. Before she was an artist, Allison was a scientist with a bachelor’s degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Science and worked various fisheries biology jobs before switching to art full time. So, it is no surprise that her connection to nature and scientific methodology are directly linked to her painting style. Allison uses geometric shapes, and what she describes as a “paint by number” system to deliver abstract paintings with captivating depth and color that makes you feel like you are peering through the looking glass. Her work can be found on her website and her instagram @alestergard. We were undeniably blown away, and we think you will be too.
We have had an absolute blast working with all the artists we have featured so far on our Artist Spotlight series, and we look forward to what’s in store for us in the future.
