Allison Ellingson is an artist working primarily with textiles and the social fabric. She received a B.A. from St. Olaf College (2002), a Master of Divinity from McCormick Theological Seminary (2007) and an M.F.A. (2015) in Fiber and Material Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Originally from Chicago, Eliingson is moving to rural Minnesota in late summer where she looks forward to making new work in the barn on her family’s land.
Allison makes work in response to her life experiences, hoping to find a form that distills that experience into something beautiful that invites others, even for a moment, into the mysterious realm of life. Right now the content of her work is rooted in becoming a mother to a typically developing daughter and a son with severe disabilities.
