Alison Musker
Alison Musker "An intriguing response to painting whilst listening in to an exciting play is that, when the action is repeated on a later date, the exact point of thought in the painting can be clearly remembered."

A drama can help create a watercolour and memories of stories and music come flooding back in a particular work.

Being interested in Radio 4, I become embedded in the background talk and learn so much about current affairs as I paint. It spurs me onwards!
Alison Musker studied at the Ecole des Arts in Paris under Jacqueline Groag and Edward Wesson and at the Reading College of Art under Leslie Orriss. She was elected an Associate Member of the Royal Watercolour Society in 2000 and a full Member in 2003. She is also a member of The Small Paintings Group, the Chelsea Art Society and the Reading Guild.

Alison has had five solo exhibitions, mainly in London but also in Italy and Albania. She has participated in over 20 group shows, and her work is included in the collections of HM The Queen Mother and HRH The Prince of Wales, amongst others.
