ALISON CASWELL, SCULPTOR AND OWNER OF CAMPUS SCULPTURES
Alison Caswell is an Oregon Native who has built a career in capturing university legacy in bronze. She first experienced the art of sculpting at age eleven during a Will Vinton “Claymation” class. Although she enjoyed this experience, she never considered sculpting professionally until much later when she visited the Rip Caswell Gallery in Troutdale, Oregon. After graduating from college, Alison assisted Caswell with three, large-scaled monument projects at the gallery. Later on, she ventured into creating bronze sculptures of her university mascot: The Duck. Her success as an artist comes from understanding the meaning of protecting a university’s brand identity and working within strict concept guidelines.
Alison’s collection of artwork emerged from collaborations with Disney, the University of Oregon, Oregon State University, the University of Southern California and Nike. Because of these relationships, she has gained experience working on large scale and time-sensitive ventures, maintaining a reputation for delivering each project on time and within budget. Her attention to detail in meeting creative goals has gained her a trusted following across many university departments as well as significant benefactors who have become loyal collectors and friends.
