Teatime Toast to Moms featured artist
The artwork featured on the Teatime Toast to Moms invitation was created by Tulsa artist Allison Keim. Allison will host a display and art sale of her work at the Teatime brunch event – generously donating a portion of the sale proceeds to benefit MHP. She is a painter known for her landscapes and figure paintings, depicted in an abstracted, gestural style. Allison’s work is often ethereal and organic. She draws inspiration from the environment of her home state of Oklahoma to create a composition revolving around an unforgettable moment or complex emotion.
