Alison Gaspard, a Houston, TX, artist and educator, graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts (BFA) from Lamar University in 2014. Currently, Gaspard is not only an art educator for the Houston Independent School District, she also began the Fine Arts Program on the same campus beginning the Fall of 2016. Before moving to Houston, Gaspard gained experience working at the Art museum of Southeast Texas. Gaspard credits the development of her style and technique to various sources including: her professors at Lamar University, her experiences while studying abroad in Florence, Italy, the staff at AMSET, and, most of all, the inspiration she derives from her students. As an educator, Gaspard is moved by the innocence of the young and their desire to learn.
