“I have come to believe that I require art. For me art is a compelling way of life, it promotes essential self-expression as well as inter-relational and intercultural connection. It is for me the most powerful way to articulate my quandaries as well as my discoveries, passions, and dreams.”
Alison Barrows-Young was born in New York City and raised in Hamilton Ontario CA. She has always been an artist and can’t remember a time when the awareness of her artistic path was not a significant part of her consciousness. Her family counts back through several generations of artists and she began training in drawing and painting with her parents when she was a small child. After taking a BFA from Antioch & SVA and an MFA from Florida State University, she divided her career between being an art professor as well as a professional studio artist. Alison is married and is the mother of four adult children.
