About my work

Allie's abstract mixed-media paintings are meant to make the viewer

feel a personal struggle through a subtle kind of intrusion. In Heart Strings, she

uses violin strings to illustrate the fluid and unpredictable motion of many mental

and neurological disorders. The rough granite pieces are reminders to stay

grounded during times of unease.

Her own experience with a sleep disorder surfaces in the sinuous structure

of her work; her paintings, with their organic materials and many layers, function

as a kind of timeline to give structure to the places where her memory is affected

by sleep deprivation. She believes that the more the public adapts to how

prevalent hidden disorders are, the easier it will be to create conversations about

what affects so many people in modern society.
