Allison McKeen is a primarily self-taught photographer and mixed media artist based in Maine. Her work is largely inspired by the rural environment of her upbringing along the Kennebec River. She equates her creative process to the themes experienced while playing outdoors: observation and adventure. Currently, she shares a downtown studio in Gardiner, Maine with artist Matt Demers.
The less I plan my artwork, the more room there is for spontaneity, resourcefulness, and problem-solving
(or as I like to call it, “adventure”).
