Alison Mitchell

Alison Mitchell (b. 1980) is a multi-disciplinary Canadian artist.
Her fiber art, paintings, and collages feature simplified, stylized subjects in limited colour palettes.  Alison’s “yarn paintings” are made with a wooden rug hooking tool called a punch needle and represent a unique blend of a classic Nova Scotia craft with Alison’s fresh modern aesthetic.

Originally from Ottawa,  Alison now lives with her young family here in Lunenburg.
Prior to getting serious about making art around 2021, she spent 17 years as a diplomat, legal advisor,  and adjunct law professor.
