Alison Dowd

Artist Statement:

Alison Dowd is an artist and community worker in Chicago, IL. She received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2011 and was awarded the New Artists Society scholarship to attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she is currently pursuing her MA in Art Therapy & Counseling.

Alison engages with material as a reflexive practice that incorporates printmaking, fiber craft, comics, and the reconstruction of fruit and personal detritus. Her work oscillates from personal to political by creating tangible artifacts that ruminate on trauma-informed creative practice and advocacy.
