Yellow and Black Photography Quote (1).p

“My paintings capture different moments. Plus, it allows me to add a little something extra to any moment.”

Allison Wenig is a painter who lives in Tempe, Arizona.

Vases is a painting of a vase wall at The Meading Room in Sonotia, Arizona. A friend sent the picture to me and suggested I paint it. I loved the brightness of the glasses and the window, so I tried to pull out the light as much as possible and make the inside wall dark enough. As I worked through this painting, I worked around all of the vase shapes to make sure I had a clean canvas to work with.

In Tempe, Allison works from her home studio and attends classes at Arizona State University where she is studying to become an Elementary Art Teacher.

Simple Love is a painting of my best friends. This was at a birthday celebration and I was taking photos of them. In this photo, they just seemed to have so much love for each other in this simple moment and I wanted to express the love with this painting. I added more detail to them as a way to draw the viewer’s eyes to the subjects and added less to the background so it would fade away.

She loves to work with children and wanted to combine her love of art with teaching. She has been interested in art and painting for about 7 years.

Allison works in Tempe from her home studio and attends classes at Arizona State University where she is studying to become an Elementary Art Teacher.

Allison started painting freshman year of high school as a fun hobby and to make art for her room. The first piece she made was a tie-dyed canvas with a black outlined Eiffel Tower on top. She made this painting for her friend, and it sparked a new interest for her. She ran straight to Target to get cheap paint, fun-shaped canvases, and got to work.

Allison has worked with oil paints as her primary medium for about 2 to 3 years. In this time, she has spent most of it practicing working with this medium and perfecting the techniques she can use while painting. Her palette consists of Alizarin Crimson, Indian Yellow, Phthalo Blue, Mars Black, and Titanium White.

She never thought about becoming a serious artist until later in 2020 where she decided to buckle down and start doing the work it would take to become an artist.
