Alison C. Board is an artist who's career has been extensive and varied. After working in her family's art materials business, she spent 15 years managing and subsequently owning a contemporary gallery and arts centre in Wimborne Minster, Dorset. It was here she discovered a love of teaching and a desire to further her creative knowledge. In 2013 she successfully completed a BA Hons degree in Fine Art, passing with First Class Honours. This has exposed her to many different disciplines which now inform her practice including painting, installation and printmaking. She now divides her time between her studio at her home in Stourpaine, Dorset and her position as Gallery Shop Manager at Walford Mill Crafts, Wimborne.
