North Wales based artist Alison Bradley has been a painter all her life. Despite following other careers after University, her heart was always in her artwork and moving to the Clwydian Hills in 2004 prompted her to turn her passion into her profession.
In 2008, Alison and her partner Jon opened the first gallery of her work in the Snowdonia village of Betws-y-coed, which had been home to Britain’s first Artists’ Colony from 1844 until the outbreak of the First World War. Alison quickly became widely known for her depictions of the dramatic light and weather in Snowdonia, and her sensitive renditions of the local farmers and their livestock. Occasionally Alison would paint horses, but this aspect of her work has recently seen a significant expansion with the opening of her second gallery in Chester in 2016. Working with the lovely team at Chester and Bangor-on-Dee Racecourses, Alison has enjoyed developing her new collection of Equestrian and Racing work. In 2019, Alison moved permanently from Betws-y-coed to Chester and added a new collection of Lake District landscapes to her portfolio.
Alison’s work is in the collection of the National Library of Wales, and was featured in the BBC TV documentary, “Inspired by Snowdonia”.
