Alison Weld is a female artist working in upstate New York. She received a BFA from the College of Art and Design at Alfred University and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Afterwards, she moved to New York City, like many young artists before her, to pursue a career in art. Weld’s work is grounded in the emotional, mystical, and romantic branch of expressive abstraction. Weld sees her body of work reflecting her identity as a woman artist born in 1953 at a time when women were still marginalized.
