Allyson has long been both a painter in watercolor, acrylic and oils, and a social sculptor, a creator who taps into art's potential to transform society. In 2008, Allyson Grey & internationally renowned artist, Alex Grey, co-founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, CoSM, located in NY’s Hudson Valley, a radically welcoming Art Church. Allyson's paintings represent an essentialized world view symbolizing three elements: CHAOS and the material world of entropy; ORDER, the force field of interconnected light; and SECRET WRITING, the mystic language of creative expression. Allyson has edited and co-written more than a dozen books, as well as countless articles, chapters, interviews and forwards.
She is currently writing and editing the eleventh CoSM Journal of Visionary Culture, an annual forum featuring the work and stories of artists, thinkers and community builders, dedicated to transformative living and the integration of wisdom and the arts. Allyson leads abundant art classes and experiential events at CoSM. Dubbed Goddess of Get-Your-Sh*t-Together, Allyson offers private Art & Life consultations and is entrusted as muse and advisor on her blog, Ask Allyson About Art & Life. A leader of a growing community, Allyson has been invited to speak at many conferences and symposia including the Women's Visionary Congress in California, the Horizons Conference in New York City and the World Psychedelic Forum in Basil, Switzerland.
