b. 1999 Alison Laing is a painter and illustrator based in Edinburgh.
After graduating from BA(Hons) Illustration at Edinburgh College of Art in 2021, Laing went on to develop her artistic practice inspired by a semester spent studying in Switzerland. During this time, Laing discovered her passion and excitement for abstracted landscape painting which has seen her go on to exhibit in institutions such as the Royal Scottish Academy, City Art Centre, Dundas Street Gallery and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. Her work is categorised by her use of bold brushstrokes and energetic mark-making as well as her affinity for experimentation with other artistic disciplines such as textiles, embroidery, and printmaking.
