painting second chances in life
Animal & Nature Artist
using bold and bright colors with a touch of whimsy
Allison Luci, aka, Allie for the Soul
My art, as my life, is a work in progress, always evolving...
The eternal optimist in me always sees the bright side. My mantra is "No Mud, No Lotus", which is the title of Buddhist teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh's book, that teaches the art of transforming suffering and seeing the beauty.
The key is to recognize joy and find happiness in everyday moments, even when things aren't always the brightest.
That's what I try to do in life and through my art. Most especially with my animal art.
I always want to show the light, hope and love that we can find in everyday moments.
Without the mud, we would never have the beautiful lotus flower.
Without the darkness, we wouldn't know light.
Find the light each day.
I hope you find the light in my art. (Along with lots of color and a side of whimsy!)
Peace and love.

Everything I paint, I paint from my heart
I always come back to Allie when I need new art for my home. Actually even though I don't need it. Her work is just so stunning! There is so much love and happiness in her paintings...you just need to see/feel it then you know.
Absolutely beautiful. I love it, puts a smile on my face every time I see it.
This painting is beautifully done. The coloration really makes it stand out. Allie certainly has a talent. Very happy with my purchase.
