In her work, Alison Filley explores the trappings associated with domestic expectations and contemporary
popular culture using elaborate ornamental patterning and photographic imagery. Her body of work includes
two-dimensional prints, sculptural objects, and installations that combine glitter, flocking, screen printing, and
digital print media. She is currently the Coordinator of Studios and Outreach Programs at St. Ambrose
University in Davenport, Iowa. She received her MFA from the University of Iowa and her BFA from Washington
University in St. Louis. Over the last year she has created multiple mixed-media paper and fiber installations as
the window display designer at Hands Jewelers in Iowa City.
