Having studied Graphic Design and Fine Art Printmaking in South Africa, Alison Greenhorn moved to New Zealand to make a home by the sea and pursue her passion for art. A mixed media artist, Alison’s works are quirky and whimsical whether they take the form of a drawing or a piece of jewellery.
Her venture into jewellery began as Alison liked the idea of creating small, three dimensional items that were visually appealing, had significance and were pleasing to touch. Inspired by a multitude of sources (including ancient treasures, talismans, tribal and medieval relics) each piece has been designed to resemble time-worn remnants. Pewter, silver, copper and brass, as well as pigmented resin, are used in many of Alison’s works with each component carefully hand carved and then cast from wax.
Alison’s drawings are generally produced in watercolours or graphite. Whimsical yet thought provoking, Alison often works on a series of images to create an overall message or story before moving on to a new story. Previous series have included works on envelopes and a ‘treasury of fabled beasts’.
Alison’s work is stocked in select galleries across New Zealand.
