"In the Victorian era, postcards were an art form of innuendo and intrigue. Times were simpler then with no technology & perfect penmanship was required. This series emulates these daily postcards and each painting contains an iconic snippet from postcards of the past."
Alison Haley Paul is a contemporary painter of lavishly textured landscapes full of nuanced color. Her work conjures up connotations and geographical memories. The places she paints may not be physically specific, but they are immediately recognizable.
Alison grew up in Greenwich, Connecticut, and majored in Art and Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. There she studied ceramics with Byron Temple, a disciple of Bernard Leach, and design with sculptor David Lee Brown. After earning a BA in Interior Design at the Design Institute in San Diego and many years as a successful interior designer she has now returned to her studio full time.
Her work has been exhibited in numerous museums, solo shows, and public and private collections worldwide.
