Alyson Provax is an artist living in Portland, Oregon. She is interested in mundane experiences of boredom and anxiety, the transcendent feeling of considering the size of the universe, and the sensual tactile.

Her work is based in printmaking, but often expands into animation and collage. She works experimentally, and often makes one-of-a-kind prints, using the matrix to create repetition within the same piece.

Alyson is a graduate of Pacific Northwest College of Art and was the recipient of the school's Liberal Arts Award.
