I was first introduced to Alison Shaw’s work when visiting a friend on Martha’s Vineyard in the early ’90s. Since then, Alison’s West Tisbury Lamb has become one of my favorite baby gifts. But it wasn’t until I visited her site recently that I realized the breadth of her work. Ranging from abstract seascapes to striking black & white architectural images to the colbalt blues of her collection from Greece, Alison’s portfolio includes sheer beauty for walls. As a fledgling artist myself, I’m particularly drawn to her images from artists’ studios, proving that a messy space — in and of itself — can be stunning.
