Following a few years of combining her art practice with teaching screenwriting, she is now a full-time practising artist and is a member of Espacio, an artist-run gallery in Bethnal Green.

Alison's work is in private collections in the UK and internationally. Her work as been purchased by the City Lit Institute for its own collection and she was commissioned by the London Borough of Ealing for a public art project.

Alison has run workshops in both visual art and film-making for adults and young people and she occasionally makes short films for charitable organisations.
