Alison Pilcher

Artist and Teacheralison pilcher artist and work

Alison Pilcher trained in London, where she graduated with a Degree in Graphics and Design.

Later she went on to teach secondary school art.

She is married to a doctor who works at the ICU department of the Alfred Hospital and has three children aged 12, 17, and 19.

When the family first came to Melbourne they lived in Kensington, where Alison decided to take up creating mosaic pots. This led to creating mosaic pictures, one of which is shown to the right.

Many of Alison’s paintings sell on the Blue Thumb Art Gallery website

As an art teacher, Alison has taught many students. In one session she took a class to the bush in Tulip Street, Sandringham. That appears to have been a very talented class as demonstrated by the pictures shown below.

Alison also worked for “Carers in the Community” for five years. This group raised money for respite care. By teaching art and painting, many people had the opportunity to express their creativity. However, funding for this program was cut once the NDIS scheme started. Bayside City Council gave some support by providing a $3000 grant. Now the G3 Gallery has been created. Overall, the Carers in the Community group have helped stop isolation, helped to bond relationships and create new friendships, all of which are positive outcomes.

Alison’s art classes are held on Mondays and Thursdays between 9:30 am and 12 pm. The subject is called Contemporary Acrylic Painting, and caters for all levels from beginner to advanced. Bookings should be directed to Le Studio Art Space on 0425 721 203.
