Raised in Monticello, Iowa, Allison moved to Dubuque in 2001 after marrying her husband, where they are now raising a family of four kids. She has always loved all forms of art, even learning and practicing through her studies to earn an Associate Degree in Nursing. Currently working as a nurse, Poster spends the rest of her time creating art at her studio space, and taking art classes.
Poster enjoys inspiration from amateur photography, nature and local architecture. The healing aspect of her job also provides inspiration, and her art is therapeutic for her.
