Allison Dubilier was born and raised in Connecticut. She attended the Paier School of Art in Hamden, CT where she majored in illustration and fine arts with a concentration on the human figure. She continued to draw and work on children's book illustrations. After moving to Vermont in 1988, she began work in the newspaper industry in which she has continued to be involved for 19 years. Her work today garners an influence from fairy tales and children's stories, as well as works from modern European artists. The dolls she creates are composed of cloth and clay based from sketches. It is her first foray into 3-dimensional art.
