Today we’d like to introduce you to Alison Hixon.
Alison, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I grew up in Iowa but have been based here on the North side of Chicago in Rogers Park for 5 years.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I’m interested and inspired by women, nature, fashion, dreams, music, self-development, and sisterhood. My body of work features a range of hand drawn and digital illustrations. My illustrations are made with ink and watercolor on paper. My work comes off as very whimsical and I love telling stories through my art.
What do you think it takes to be successful as an artist?
Being successful to me means always working, always creating, and always being open to new ideas and challenges. Being an honest advocate for yourself and your art and never limiting yourself. I think the most important characteristic for an artist is to stay curious.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
I have my website www.shesaidillustration.com where anyone can stop by and take a look at current work and also order private commissions, and prints. One of my favorite things is creating personalized illustrations for people whether it be a couple, family, pet, friend, or self- portrait. I love collaborating and highlighting special moments and relationships for people to cherish forever. Check out my work and let’s collaborate together!
