Allison Krajcik

Allison Krajcik works in pastel and oil to capture landscape and still life subjects. At the age of 12, she traveled cross-country with her family, camping, and visiting many of the national parks which inspired her love of the landscape’s natural beauty. This experience, coupled with the advice of a high school art teacher, motivated her to pursue a career in fine art and design.

After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, she continued her professional training through participation in workshops with various artists. She explored oil painting with Caleb Stone, Mary Moquin, and Stuart Shils, as well as taking a year-long painting course to explore color harmony with western painter Skip Whitcomb and a plein air workshop with Kathie Odom. She has also explored pastel painting techniques with Dawn Emerson (author of Pastel Innovations), Tara Will, and Loriann Signori.

She has been a member of the Oil Painters of America since 2006 and has also become a Signature member of both the Pastel Society of America and the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod. She has most recently been accepted to the Copley Society of Boston, and her work has been published in American Art Collector Magazine and Art & Color 365.

She finds moving water, cloud filled skies and backlit flowers the most interesting subjects to explore color interaction and luminosity as well as the contrast between solidity and transparency. She seeks to convey the vulnerability and power of nature through her art, inviting viewers to reflect on the beauty that surrounds us and the delicate balance that sustains our world.
