Alison S. Marra is an abstract painter and mixed media artist whose work investigates themes of cultural femininity, human instinct, and the natural environment.
From 2007-2011, she completed murals in the lower Hudson Valley at Dance & Theater Arts Studios, Purpl, and Springhurst Elementary School. She has created and taught classes to adults on how to reclaim a creative life, and for seven years she was the artist in residence at Hillside Elementary School, where she guided students through art projects to supplement their social studies curriculum.
Alison lives with her partner and their daughters in Yonkers, NY. She works in the shared studio, Collective Art Space, in Dobbs Ferry, NY.
