I would like to introduce you my friend, Allison Street. Not only is she a busy mom of 5, who educates her children at home, she is also a talented sculptor. What I love about her art is that she uses her classical training to wrestle with difficult modern issues such as Aids, or the war in Afghanistan. Some of her work displays heart break, yet there is always tenderness and hope. Allison, as she states on her blog, seeks to achieve a balance between the communication of truth, personal expression and the celebration of beauty.

Allison’s sculptures are made of bronze, are 18 to 31 inches tall, and weigh about 20 lbs. Her skill, combined with her subject matter makes her a powerful contributor to the Christian art world. I hope to own the Afghan woman sculpture one day….
