Alison Watt is a visual artist and writer whose painting and writing are both informed by the natural world. Her work includes botanical watercolours as well as still lifes, landscapes, and abstracts in mixed media, plaster, acrylic, and oil. Alison has shown her work in group and solo shows in Vancouver and on Vancouver Island, and she teaches painting in her studio on Protection Island (BC) and abroad (southern France).
In her twenties Alison worked as a seabird biologist in the Scott Islands, an experience she transformed into the award-winning book The Last Island, a Naturalist’s Sojourn on Triangle Island. She has sailed BC’s West Coast and worked as a naturalist along its length, from the Strait of Georgia to Johnstone Strait, the Great Bear Rainforest, the Kitlope Valley, and Haida Gwaii.
