Allison Chambers was born in Wilmington, N.C. but has lived in Charlotte for much of her life. There, Chambers enjoyed a successful career painting faux finishes and murals.
In 2007, Chambers experienced some of the most significant events of her life. Then a mother of two, she married her husband, Jay, and became a mother of six - all girls. That same year, Chambers began studying oils under the renowned painter Andy Braitman. It was at this time when Chambers discovered fine art painting, which she describes as her true passion and therapy. In 2009, she became an artist in residence at Braitman Studio. This led her to a full time career in fine art, becoming a professional painter and teacher, focusing on the oils medium.
Since then, Chambers has honed her craft studying under many wonderful artists such as Curt Butler, Nancy Franke and the late Ken Auster among others.
I create color and texture driven paintings on a medium to large scale and my work has an impasto style. I use a palette knife liberally and appreciate beautiful brushstrokes and my aesthetic tends to combine all of these elements. It is a joy and a challenge to experiment with color and I do so by switching from a full palette to a limited palette. My goal is to create an abstracted interpretation of life.
