Let me start by saying… we haven’t been to Monhegan in a while. This photo was taken several years ago in Alison Hill’s amazing studio. Those of you who know Alison, love her – she’s a kind hearted, soft spoken, amazing artist. Her work is incredible and a visit to her studio is a “must do” when you’re on the island. (She’s actually one of the reasons we originally visited Monhegan) – Alison is out painting every single day – her dedication is admirable.
Alison paints often, and her paintings reflect Monhegan (Maine) so perfectly. You can hear the waves crashing and the birds singing their tunes while looking so free. Check out her beautiful paintings and learn more about Alison via the links below! If you’re visiting Monhegan, stop by and see Alison’s work – it’s impeccable, and her studio/gallery is stunning!

Painting has become my way of moving through this world, responding to and expressing what I see and feel. It is my interpretation, using color, stroke, and line, to evoke the mood I am receiving, whether it is a landscape, a person, or a still life, I want to recreate what i am receiving.
Through some fortunate circumstances, i am now living on Monhegan island, Maine. In the summer i run a studio gallery, and off season I spend painting, traveling, doing portraits, and other art related endeavors. Monhegan offers endless inspiration, no matter what the season, and I feel very fortunate to call this home.
