Allison Gregory : Austin Texas Artist

Allison Gregory was born in San Antonio, Texas, and picked up her first paintbrush at the age of 5. Her passion and interest in art proved to be integral in her creative process. This drive and inspiration led her to California, where she earned two degrees, graduating with honors, in Studio Art and Design.

Two months after returning to Texas, Allison had her first exhibition. The success of the show, and the press generated from the event, paved the way for future opportunities. With the new galleries that were representing her, she was introduced to collectors from all over the globe, and had a steady stream of commissions. Her first international show was held in Holland at the age of 25.

Through the last decade, Allison has participated in 102 exhibitions to date (Including major art fairs), interviewed on television, had her work reviewed in magazines, newspapers, and books, while working with prestigious galleries from all over the world. In addition to her career in art, she has also been involved in numerous public art projects for non-profit. Past events events have included Gibson’s Guitar Town, the world renowned CowParade, and most recently “Paws for a PURR-pose”, the first ever statewide, public art project. This was especially noteworthy being the lead artist and founder of the event (Paws being her “brain-child”). In these three projects alone, her work has raised over a half of a million dollars for non-profit’s and charitable organizations such as the Dell Children’s Cancer Hospital, Texas Humane Legislation Network for the Animals, Austin Children’s Museum and Juvenile Diabetes.

Various side projects have involved partnering with several companies all over the world, that specialize in reproducing art for luxury home accessories. From high-end glass ware, coffee table bowls, animal figurines, shower curtains, iPhones and iPads, her art is everywhere!

“Persistence is key”, the motto Allison adheres to most, has proven to be integral in her success, and her work has evolved and matured into sophisticated “eye candy”. She lives and works in Austin, Texas.
