Based in the Isle of Wight and Southern Counties, Alison Parsons-Smith specializes in fine art prints of animals, fish and nature for interiors and a range of greeting cards combining photographic images with freehand and digital drawing printed on photographic or fine art papers using durable pigmented inks. With a background in art Alison originally qualified as a restorer of antique ceramics at West Dean College in Sussex where she ran a successful business before moving to the Isle of Wight where she trained as a photographer. All commissions are normally supplied framed and are printed on the highest quality fine art paper. Alison keeps her own ponies, dog and cat and has much experience in working around animals. In addition to private commissions, her work is exhibited and sold through retail outlets on the island. She is a successful animal/pet photographer and assists her local RSPCA centre by photographing the many cats, dogs and other animals for their website and promotional material.
