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 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.
Allison began her art career as a painter for Wine and Canvas in Lexington. She thoroughly enjoys teaching beginners and inviting people to get in touch with their creativity and understand painting as a form of worship.
Allison is available for private parties of up to 30 people and will paint any painting desired. Classes are also available for children's parties.
Allison is available for private lessons for those ages 8 and up. Lessons take place in her Georgetown, KY studio and may be attended by one student, or multiple students at a discount.
Allison is available to teach acrylic, oil, and watercolor paints. She enjoys helping creatives find their passion and inspiration.
