Allison May Ward, known also as "Allie" is an artist and calligrapher living in Athens, Georgia. Allison is the mother of 2 grown children, Maggie and Taylor. She is the proud aunt of Joey. 


Encouraged by her mother from a young age, Allison sketches every day and enjoys drawing the interesting places in the college town she calls home. With a large botanical garden nearby she works to document the beautiful gardens one flower at a time.


Allison's studio, "Homeward", was named for her family home in Enterprise, Mississippi. Currently, under renovation, she hopes her studio will be a beautiful place to create, in a city that loves the arts.
