At Home with Allison Meyler

An artist who approaches the female figure with grace, creativity, and vibrant colors

Local artist Allison Meyler welcomed us into her home to present her brilliant artwork placed about in the light and cheery 1890's farmhouse she's lived in for 18 years. "My taste is modern and sparse," she said of her home design preference, claiming that "white is a good backdrop for everything."

She began painting in college. Attending her first abstract art class was what initially led to her signature art aesthetic of exploring the female form. "I love challenging myself," she explains. I thought, 'what would I never do?' So I began pulling images of classic Greek sculptures and discovered I really like the strong woman figure."

Deriving influences from her art history background, visiting current exhibits, and her love of travel, Allison confirmed all of these elements inform her work. "Art has always been a part of me," she says. "When I was younger, I knew how to knit, needle point and sew — now, it's an important way to express myself."

Her art is sold through various platforms including Serena & Lily, and is showcased in the Red Fox Gallery in Pound Ridge, NY.

When it comes to picking modern art for your home, Allison argues if it's going to be something you live with, you should love it every time you look at it. "I think it's a gut feeling," she says.
