Allison studied fine art at the Kansas City Art Institute in the Fiber Art Department. After college, she was employed in a fiber art lamp; design studio in Bonner Springs, Kansas. It was in Bonner Springs where she met owner of the Moon Marble Company, Bruce Breslow, and began working for the Moon as their graphic and web designer. Exposed to many talented glass artists, she couldn’t resist the draw to take up the medium herself and began taking classes in stained glass and later in glass fusing. Allison actively pursues her work in fiber art, glass art, and kaleidoscope making and maintaining a balance in all areas. Her weavings and stained glass panels are primarily nature inspired, while her work in kaleidoscopes is inspired by her observations through the kaleidoscopes themselves.
