Allie Dodson

Art Explorations, Art Toolbox

Mrs. Dodson is a wife, mom and artist, born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. She earned a B.A. in Language Studies from the University of California at Santa Cruz in 1997. She worked in the business world for ten years (art supplies and toy manufacturing), prior to starting her next chapter as a stay-at-home mom. Six years ago, along with her husband Matt and kids Jake and Chloe, she moved to Texas and began homeschooling. A third-generation artist, she is skilled in different art mediums, though she is currently handcrafting creations from paper or fabric. In recent years, she has taught workshops at her home, encouraging students to express themselves through the creative process. In addition to art, she loves birds, baking and being outdoors. She and her family are members at Christ Community Church in Houston.
