allie artTM is the colorful creation of Allie Guard, a young woman with Down Syndrome from Cincinnati who is drawn to the magic of color.
Using colored pencils, she fills intricate patterns with bright hues to create graphic landscapes, each with unique qualities of movement and emotion. After completing a design, the artwork is either framed for display, turned into wearable art in jewelry and accessories, or added to usable items such as book marks, key rings, ID badge reels and bottle stoppers. Allie's mother, Sharon, helps her in the process. All pieces are one-of-a-kind and guaranteed to elicit smiles.
