About  Alyson  Cadd-Harlington


I studied art and Interior Design in Manchester. Now I live in East Cheshire I am slowly rediscovering my artistic roots and am on a journey of experimenting with ‘unpredictable’ acrylics and deep texture. My style (and nature) tends to be controlled and realistic, which is ideal for animal art and pet portraits. However I am determined to be looser and more expressive as time progresses.

Alyson  Cadd  –  Biography  

From BA to SEO to MDF

In the 1980s I studied Art and Architecture, then specialised in commercial Retail and Exhibition Design, working for major high street brands and a major restaurant and pub chain. 

Following a break to have a family I retrained in marketing, specialising in graphic design, branding, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and website design. Basically, using my art and design skills in any feasible way. I developed my own consultancy between 2006 and 2016, then decided to retire early and rekindle my artistic interests.

I went on to complete commissioned portraits of people and animals, one of which was offered as a prize in a community competition. I also use my portraits to support several animal charities.

I am still on a journey of discovery, with various mediums including watercolour, acrylics, metallics and natural materials. I also use alternative techniques such as templates and stencils and I am venturing into digital media. My ambition is to create simple, highly visual, textural pieces of art that people want to have in their homes.  I accept commissions and am particularly interested in working with other businesses and artists, to network, support and share ideas for developing ways to cooperate to display or sell art.
