My Somerset is a new exhibition of paintings and iPad art by Somerset based artist Alison Jacobs.

Alison’s artwork often explores the county’s rural landscape and environment, which is an important influence over her practice. A sense of connection to the real physical environment, especially the landscape and flatlands on the coastal margins, is a constant source of fascination and inspiration for the artist.

Her work is predominantly based around her time living at Steart Marshes, the Watchet  coast and now Stolford next to Hinkley Point. For ‘My Somerset’ she has also produced several new works in response to the museum’s site and its collections, which will be exhibited for the first time.

Alison has been exploring iPad painting as a way of capturing a scene in situ for several years. She also paints in a range of media, and enjoys the interlay of digital media with the traditional craft of painting.

Alison was a founder member of Contains Art in Watchet and has been a member of Somerset Art Weeks since 2005.
