Beautiful, colorful things to brighten up your life

My name is Alison Kolesar and I work from my home in a small college town in New England. My studio is a lovely light-filled room that looks out onto trees. It used to be my kids' playroom and then my youngest son's bedroom but now that my four kids are grown and gone I get to create in the nicest room in the house.

I've always loved drawing and painting though I didn't go to art school and instead took an academic route with degrees in history and art history.

I've illustrated a lot of craft and gardening books - tons of knitting illustrations! - but for my Etsy shop I can focus on what I feel like creating. I can also keep things fresh by going back and forth between two and three dimensional work, mixing it up with acrylic and watercolor and collage, calligraphy and papier mache.

My starting point for a piece may be something I've seen by another artist but once I start to work that first inspiration changes almost completely as the piece becomes my own. With my papier mache creatures it sometimes feels as though they emerge the way they want to be and I'm just the midwife! I do seem to be particularly drawn to images of birds and I love bright colors.

    Owner, Artist

    I've always enjoyed painting, drawing and making things. If you'd asked me as a child what I wanted to be when I grew up I'd have said "an artist". It's even better when I get to share what I've made with other people. I hope you enjoy them.
