�We live in a world where narrow specialisation is regarded as the key to success. Alison Bolton is a formidable exception artist, naturalist and teacher, a complete person where her understanding of living things and their habitats informs her art; and together with her knowledge of the creative process, made explicit as a teacher, gives tremendous authority to her work.�
