Artist's StatementAlison graduated in Graphic Design in 1990 and now works as a professional illustrator, printmaker and painter. Her printmaking work continues to be inspired by observing the changing seasons on her daily dog walks; from skeletal winter trees to close-up studies of seed heads, birds and pebbles. VK Gallery, in St Ives, stock her prints and new oil paintings as well as her own range of cards and screen-printed tea towels. She also supplies the National Trust shops at Anglesey Abbey, Wicken Fen, Wimpole Hall, Ickworth House and Houghton Mill.
Alison has designed countless products for the stationery industry including Flamingo Paperie (formerly Phoenix Trading), Green Pebble and Artists' Cards. She is happy to work to commission; from wedding invitations to bespoke paintings.
Alison was selected for the highly acclaimed 2014 and 2016 Cambridge Original Printmakers Biennale. She has participated in Open Studios every year since 1996 when she worked from her parents garage to now having her own purpose built garden studio at her home in Milton. This year she is working on more oil paintings on wooden panels depicting varied landscapes and also her interest in contemporary ceramics.
Alison is happy to explain her printmaking techniques; including drypoint, lino-printing and how to make collographs. She always has a large selection of published and handmade cards and wrapping paper for sale plus framed and unframed prints. Her popular collection of pick & mix coasters and range of screen printed tea towels will also be available. www.hullyer.co.uk

Alison Hullyer's Portfolios
Here is a selection of my printmaking including drypoint, lino-cuts and collographs.
I design artwork for publishers and also for my own products such as cards, coasters and tea towels.
I completed this series of oil painting on birch-wood panels in June 2022. They were inspired by the landscape of the Fens contrasted with that of the Scottish highlands, which I visited in May that year.
