Alison Leigh Menke
Alison Leigh Menke is an expressive impressionist with a focus in plein air painting.
Her approach both emphasizes the importance of translating a true sense of light and place while expressing the rich qualities of oil paint and brushwork. Painting thick and thinking “small abstractions” Alison creates large marks on an Aluminum surface. In 2010 she graduated from University of Maryland with Art and Art History and has study art both in Greece and Amsterdam. Constantly traveling, she has competed in nearly one hundred national and international painting competitions and festivals, garnered many awards and publications, and belongs to several art societies around the country. On a fun note, Alison will be hosting artist retreats and workshops to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico in 2022. It will be a wonderful opportunity to share in the art and culture of island life.
