Alison Atkins began winning awards for her art at the age of eight. She received a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Her work has been favorably compared to many European and American post- impressionists. Her style, however, is pure Alison Atkins. Her paintings are a reflection of her life and her experiences, faithfully depicting her moods and her emotions
in diverse treatments. Widely collected in the United States and in Europe, her artistic journey continues as she finds new inspiration for her art from the life around her.
