Art is a gateway to the heart and a window to the soul.
Hi, welcome to my website! My name is Alison Simons and I am a self-taught artist in fluid art, specialising in fluid acrylic pours and resin. I have been crafting for as long as I can remember and it is an honour to now share my work with you.
I have a passion for both art and science so this art style suits me well. Acrylic pouring relies on exact ratios of paint, pouring medium and additives, as well as the perfect pouring consistency to create the special effects in the end pieces. I love experimenting and trying new 'recipes' and techniques, using a variety of canvases. You will often see metallics in my acrylic work and watch out for my work with phosphorescent paints creating glow-in the dark effects! I finish my canvases with a coat of clear high gloss varnish or resin, both of which protect the painting and make the colours 'pop'.
Resin is a wonderfully versatile product and I enjoy creating other products with it, including; bookmarks; resin art, such as, ocean pours; embellished kitchen items, such as, chopping boards or serving platters; coasters; the list is endless. I also make resin jewellery, using silver or gold-filled fixtures and chains and often wire wrap the resin 'stones' in elegant and stylish designs. I sometimes use gem-stones in the wrapping or connectors, or embed them into the resin itself.
Please enjoy browsing my website and if anything takes your fancy but you would like a different colour or shape, or you have an idea of something completely new please contact me. I am happy to discuss commissions.
