CONTEMPORARY FINE ARTWORK

BY ALYSON MCCRINK

Alyson McCrink is a contemporary abstract painter who lives and works in Seattle, Washington. Growing up on the west coast, her colorful representations of nature pay homage to her homeland. Her distinctive personal style emanates curiosity among her viewers.

Her artwork can be viewed as a topographical depiction of the natural world, an underwater perspective, or a landscape of a far away horizon. All views are all brought to life with contrasting and harmonious colors and bold compositions. As the artist explains, “I’m trying to show aspects of the natural world that need attention brought to them. I welcome the viewer to contemplate the visual journey of each painting.”

As a child Alyson took any object she could find to color or paint on. From a young age she has believed, “You can create the world you see in your mind, to show others a better way.” She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Boise State University and has been an active artist, showing her work in galleries, fine art festivals, and public spaces. 

Alyson’s artwork has been shown in exhibitions in Washington, California, Idaho and Oregon. One of her paintings was recently acquired by Marriot for permanent display at their location in Agoura, CA. She regularly participates in Fine Art Festivals and shows her work at the Bellevue Art Museum Arts Fair, Anacortes Art Festival, Redmond Arts Festival, Edmonds Arts Festival, Sacramento Arts Festival and many more.

She has a body of work that is available for purchase and does custom, commission pieces as well. She sells pieces in a large variety of sizes and prices, so there is something for everyone.
