1987 - ?

Alison Mayston

Alison Marie Mayston was born at Ipswich in 1987, youngest child of Michael J. Mayston and his wife Carol Mayston née Marjoram, who married at Ipswich in 1978. Alisonís work explores an interpretation of the female figure through different forms of drawing and sculpture, expressing her view of the female form by concentrating on the things that an artist considers to be beautiful and sensually feminine about this subject. By using the format of simple lines to define and capture the pure and flowing curves of the female figure Alison can create an impression that is innately simple. The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns, to add a bit of complexity to the lines she blends and mixes the colours to give depth and softness to the figure. This approach works well and has led her to create many abstractions of the figure in her work and she exhibits at Art on the Prom at Felixstowe, Suffolk. She is the author of 'Polymer Clay Critters: A little project book to discover what you can do with Polymer Clay' (2019).
