Alison Barter


I have always drawn and painted instinctively. I studied at Moseley Road Art School in Birmingham and then at Newton Park College in Bath and worked as a primary school teacher. I now run classes and courses from my studio in Clehonger, Herefordshire.

The inspiration for my paintings comes from all the beautiful nature, plants, wildlife and countryside surrounding my home.  And of course from my own cats !

I have experimented with a variety of media to capture all this beauty in colour and design and   have recently started painting cat and flower subjects in watercolour.

My love of cats has been life-long and I have cared for many of these delightful creatures.
