Olives and Pearls...

features the work of Kentucky artist Allison Strickling.  Allison is passionate about motherhood, and as a doula and mother herself believes that empowering women through art and finding beauty in everyday occurrences serves as a reminder of the importance and meaning in everyday life. 

Allison has had an interesting life, and draws from her experiences in her work.  She is honest about past hurts and uses her work as an invitation to the viewer to understand themselves and their experiences better. She is inspired by her family, her work, her past experiences, and her faith, and is available and enjoys participating in live painting demonstrations at Christian worship events

Worship


Worship


 While she works primarily in oil, Allison paints with acrylic live during worship events. During these events she seeks God for the subject of her painting and often paints visions she was given prior to, or during, the event.  If you're interested in having her come to an event, please contact her using the contact page.  Allison Strickling is the painter for the worship group Reveal in Lexington KY.

Allison Enjoys Teaching

While, like most of us, she is still perfecting her craft, she is open to accepting students.  She enjoys working with elementary schoolers and young adults, but is open to teaching all ages.  Allison is a regular instructor for Wind and Canvas in Lexington, and as such, is experienced working with those who have little to no experience painting. Allison is honored to have recently tutored a student who was successfully admitted to SCAPA in Lexington.

Commissions


Commissions


Allison is open to commissions. She enjoys portraiture, pet portraiture, and homes.  Being in Kentucky, she often has the opportunity to paint horses.  As a doula she loves painting families and children, as well as women pregnant and in labor.  While she is open to creating traditional classic portraits, she enjoys unique commissions which allow her to explore the subject in a way that is creative and unexpected.
