Originally from Prince Rupert, Alison Newth moved with her family to Fort St. John in the 1980s and has resided there ever since, except for a short stint in the Okanagan in the 90s. Located in northeastern British Columbia, Fort St. John is known for its outstanding sunsets and northern lights.
Alison has been showing her work steadily over the last few years and her original paintings reside with collectors across Canada and the US. Some of Alison’s achievements include having her artwork selected as the cover art for the novel Raft Baby, by Bonnie Dunlop, and being selected for a public art display in FSJ’s new festival plaza.
Alison uses acrylic and oil paints to capture the spirit and vibrance of landscapes that hold special meaning–the beautiful Peace River is one of her most beloved and popular subjects
