I appreciate the way that Allison’s artistic practice is intertwined with her workshops and teaching materials. There’s a thread of spiritual and personal awareness that runs deeply through each section of the artist’s portfolio. As we saw in our previous feature of Allison’s work with esoteric guidance, the artist often seems to use poetry and bookmaking as ways to facilitate deeper thought or new ways of seeing.

In previous work, Allison has explored the use of maps as a way of looking at one’s thought patterns, goals, and activities. I wonder if this is a technique that appears in the artist’s workshops, as well. I look forward to seeing what Allison has been producing in recent years!
