Alison Kurek

If asked to describe my purpose in life I’d have to say it’s to make people laugh. Life is challenging and, on the whole, we are too stressed out. We often forget to look at the lighter side of things. We NEED to laugh! I create fun, upbeat art work out of paint, clay, recycled fabric and paper that is meant to make the viewer smile :-) My images feature animals and people drinking wine and coffee, doing yoga, and more. Come hang out with my creatures and creations -- they are sure to lighten you mood and make you laugh.
