Allison Rockwell Trinklein
“I am seeking. I am striving. I am in it with all my heart.”
– Vincent van Gogh
Allison is a local artist who lives in Redwood City with her husband and two boys. She studied painting at UC Berkeley with a special focus on abstractions and painting BIG. More recently Allison has enjoyed challenging herself with a variety of subject matter including painting and photographing children, dancers, and underwater images. She works both from photographs and from life.
Allison has taught art in the Palo Alto and Redwood City school districts for the past 17 years. She has also been counseling for many years. Both in counseling and in painting she appreciates the time to reflect on and synthesize her life experiences and emotional states. It is a way to tune in and meditate on something for a period of time — sometimes discovering beauty and peace in the process.
Allison is excited to have the opportunity to share her work at OneLife Center’s beautiful space and hopes that sharing her work will inspire others to embark on or continue their own creative journeys. The paintings on display are available for purchase, and Allison also does commissions
