Allison Estergard is an acrylic painter living in Palmer, Alaska. She grew up in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and earned a degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences at Oregon State University. She moved to Alaska in 2014 and began focusing on her artistic pursuits after realizing she could combine her appreciation and understanding of the natural world with the skills she had developed in drawing and painting courses. Her abstract paintings, which often focus on isolated features, are inspired by the Alaskan landscape.
When out of the studio, Allison spends most of her free time hiking in the Talkeetna and Chugach Mountains with her husband and dog, Odo. She’s also been known to snuggle up with her cat, Dax, and a good book.
