Arist Statement

“ART…Bold, Strong and Edgy

 

In order to continue living, I have to dream and be creative!

In elementary school I got in trouble for day dreaming and drawing on my math papers. In middle school art classes were discovered. I survived the basic three R’s, thinking about the next art class. High school was more of the same; I often had more art classes than academic classes. In college, I majored in interior design. It was creative and would provide a living. Interior design and later event design is still my mainstay.
When my children were little, I discovered watercolors and started classes again. As the children grew, my art supplies were traded for housekeeping chores, room mother, cupcakes and my design business–more than a fair trade. As family demands lessened, I found myself visiting Allard’s Art Supply Store and I found my passion again.
What’s interesting about getting older and rediscovering yourself is that art and creativity now come without fear, thus a stronger artist. I find that it’s fun to experiment with odd elements in my paintings, from dripping candle wax on canvas or mixing sand in my paint. Dreaming up new combinations of materials and textures are always waiting to be discovered. An empty canvas talks to me and draws me into endless possibilities.
With paint on my hands and clothes,

 

Brenda Allison”

Seasonal Changes Have Begun!

We got right to work and completely transformed the showroom! If you have not been in for a couple of week, you will definitely notice all the great changes we have made. We moved and switched displays, creating new areas that are sure to inspire you! Just take a look at some of these pictures featuring our finished product…but to really experience the big transformation, you must come in for the full effect!!setup1Everyone was working hard…we moved most of the showroom around all in ONE DAY! The team did such a great job!!!
