Allison Achauer | About

I'm always looking for a new challenge. Any kind of challenge - finding perfect light at noon, getting a chicken to pose, chasing sunsets, learning Welsh. I love to find that surprising note of beauty that exists in everything around us, no matter how hidden. I'm drawn to bursts of color, jolts of recognition, and dashes of whimsy.

I have exhibited at the Long Beach Museum of Art, and have had two-person shows (with the painter Timothy Sellers) in Los Angeles at the Future Studio Gallery, Platform, and K-York Studio.

 

I am also a professional tailor and creator of custom costumes in the entertainment industry. Have a look at my extensive portfolio of work!

With my long-standing love of creative cooking it is not surprising that I found a specialization in food photography. A little more surprising is the extensive experimentation in macerated, infused, and fermented spirits (fueled by a burgeoning backyard orchard) that has led me to begin sharing my discoveries under the guise of the School of Spirits.

You will mostly find me in and around Los Angeles, with frequent forays to places of inspiration like Joshua Tree, Yosemite, and Yellowstone.
