Who we are
My name is Alison Butler and I am a Wirral based artist. I work from my home studio, creating art prints based on my original acrylic paintings and digital art work.
The Wirral is in the very unique position of being within reach of the city (Liverpool and Chester), the countryside and the coast. I have always been fascinated by all the different architectural styles that could be found in our small area; from quaint, thatched cottages to uniform, high rise flats and then the modern architecture of the city.
Some of my earliest memories are of Ferry journeys from Birkenhead over to Liverpool; standing on the deck, salt spray hitting my face, the wind whipping round my legs, totally transfixed by the beauty of the Liverpool skyline. I guess it is no surprise that Liverpool and its buildings became a major influence in my art work.
