Allyson Monson is a Redding-based photographer who, from a young age has always had a love for texture and color.

She studied textiles, merchandising and design at the University of Rhode Island and interior design at The Studio Arts Center International in Florence, Italy. While studying in Italy she worked on a project designing a print of a coffee percolator using the texture from Pirelli tires. It was from that moment that she started looking at everyday life from a different perspective.

Allyson says it is her ability to see ordinary objects differently that is what makes her work personal. Her BLUR and SPLAT series demonstrate her love for color which she feels “often transforms life into a painting.” Other series include PURE (typically shot with the macro lens), which brings texture to the surface, URBAN NATURE, which “ignites day-to-day life, and GLOW, which brings her back to her roots, portraying her love of design and light. Growing up in the suburbs of New York she says she had the city at her fingertips. The fast action and energy of metropolitan cities remain her favorite subject.
