Alison is the owner and director of the Union Gallery, Edinburgh. Her paintings are not necessarily traditional or representation, however, they do have an autobiographical element. Alison recognises that it is within natural surroundings that she can best realise her innermost feelings, often seeking the most remote or comforting places to reflect of record important developments in her life.

Across the Water is inspired by a beach near Applecross. The brilliant orange of the sand contrasts beautifully with the gentle blue of the sky, whilst the appearance of the brush strokes that remain on the card create a sense of movement within the painting. Alison uses the titles of her work to reflect a state of mind, instead of the geographical location they take inspiration from. Across the Water relates to the comforting idea that the grass is always greener on the other side.
