Let all that you do be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16 vs 14
Alison Fiore has always had a passion for art and creativity. After qualifying in Fashion & Surface pattern, her first career was as a designer in womenswear’s fast moving industry, for almost 20 years. Her life took an abrupt turn when her eldest child was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and many other complications. In this time of looking after her young family, working abroad on research trips or overseeing production in Hong Kong became impossible and she chose to care for her family instead.
She started up again, part-time, around the children’s schedule. Working on fashion shows, selling children’s clothes and contributing to a local mum’s magazine. In 2014 she returned to full time work as a Fashion department manager, only to find that she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of 2015. She decided to leave her retail position and concentrate on recovering. During chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment she found healing in creating from home, experimenting with various different art mediums.
She is now hooked on acrylic flow, an organic art form which is mesmerising and captivating to look at. She is a gifted artist who produces art pieces, reflecting the deep place of peace that she has discovered in her journey. Her art communicates the care, love and sacrifices that she has made in her own life; but leaves you with a sense of joy and contentment. These pieces are a real investment and will not only add colour and beauty to the walls of your home but will invade and change the atmosphere of the room.
