About the Artist

Allison Geckeler has worn many hats in the creative field. From starting a collaborative stationery company to trying her hand in commercial photography. She is now coming back to her roots in painting. Allison has always had a passion for color and texture and is currently experimenting with patterns and abstract renderings that create stories and evoke conversation. 

The mountains and oceans have always been a source of inspiration for her as it connects her to what she cannot control but can only experience.

I have finally stopped running from what brings me peace, joy and confidence. I realized that fear has been holding me back from pursuing what I was made for. So, I’ve decided to run towards the challenge of creating art, the mystery of nature and the greatness of God.

Allison was born and raised in Georgia. With roots in Smyrna, Macon, Athens, and now Atlanta, she couldn't imagine creating art anywhere else. She graduated from the University of Georgia in 2012 with a BFA in Fine Art Photography and is currently pursuing a Master of Divinity at Fuller Seminary.
