Alison Leigh Menke is Still Life Gallery’s best-selling artist, steadily gaining national attention for her superb talent with win after win at many art competitions. If you are an art collector, we highly recommend Alison’s work as an exceptionally good investment. 

One of the rising young stars of Plein Air painting (working outside in the open air), Alison Menke was born abroad in 1987 and raised in her current state of Maryland. Growing up she was impressed by the art of her mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Their paintings enchanted Alison throughout her youth and still inspire her today. Her great-grandmother, Georgia Leigh Caldwell was an American Impressionist.

In 2010 Alison graduated from the University of Maryland College Park with a degree in Art and Art History. Over the past several years she has focused her creative stream into Plein Air painting. Her journey began in 2011 when a three week solitary trip to Colorado turned into a five month exploration into Plein Air painting. She painted everyday, selling and bartering work out of the trunk of her car. She has spent the past two years painting in Plein Air competitions and festivals. Among her recent honors are Best in Show– Paint the Town, Chestertown, MD, 1st Place– Paint Berlin, MD, 1st Place– Harford County International Plein Air Festival, MD, and Juror’s Choice Award – Paint It! Ellicott City, MD.
