Featured Artist: Alison Parham
Alison Parham grew up in the Santa Cruz mountains and raised a family in Bonny Doon with her husband. She began painting in 1999 when a friend asked her if she wanted to take a watercolor class and she's been painting ever since. She's inspired to paint a variety of subjects and likes to include those little perfections that are present in everything around us because it makes the painting more real. Check out Alison's work at her web site.
