Alison Bour

Photography, Digital Art

Alison Bour started the formal study of photography in 2008, and after one Photoshop class, quickly fell in love with digital artistry. She creates by combining a variety of techniques and programs and often uses one or more designs as a springboard for additional work. Lately, she’s been saving images so she has a way to trace her finished abstract pieces back to the original camera shot! She loves to create traditional art, from nature and flowers to dancers and other performers. Yet if she’s been away from abstract work for too long, it calls her back.

Along with her continual search for more digital art tools, Alison continues to improve her photography and recently invested in a new camera and off-camera flash equipment. She’s a volunteer Pawparrazzi with the Humane Society of Greater Dayton, which means she takes professional shots of adoptable animals. She is currently moving into portrait work and wants to capture more landscape photos.

Her artwork has appeared and placed in juried gallery shows, including the PA Center for Photography, the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center, and Middletown Arts Center, and her work was shown at Dayton’s Art in the City the past two summers. She is a member of the Dayton Society of Artists and the Springfield Museum of Art, and shows her work at The ARTery co-op gallery at Front Street.

Alison offers all her work as matted or framed photo prints, and unframed or framed canvases in multiple sizes. Sometimes her images are available in a variety of colors. Just ask!

I've always had a strong visual spirit and soul, though I'm unable to paint, sketch, or draw. So, the computer acts as my canvas and lets me bring my artistic visions to life. I never use AI- or web-generated images, even in my purely abstract work. My art, traditional or contemporary, is created using only my own photo images as a foundation. At any given time, I might have 100 or more works in process, neatly and methodically organized on my iMac. I let the possibilities be for a while, then cull my favorite options for a particular image I have in mind. Still, many times, the outcome is different than I expect – what my former teacher calls a ‘happy accident.’
