Alyson Thiel

 I am a visual artist and teacher based in San Carlos, CA, by way of Louisville, KY. I paint, I make flowers from paper, and I teach classes and workshops.

I am passionate about colors, textures, lines, and shapes: I make paintings that celebrate the relationship that these elements have with one another. My paper flowers are like paintings in themselves: reactions to color, texture, line, and shape in nature represented in paper, paint, glue, and wire. My work in the classroom inspires my artmaking process: working alongside children reminds me to let go of inhibition, embrace the silly, and never stop playing.

Have a question or want to talk? I love collaborating, sharing my work, and learning more about processes, paint, paper, and creative play! Iā€™d love to hear from you!
