Alison Ruth Barry
Alison Ruth Barry is originally from London and has been living in San Francisco for over three years. She got her BA at the California Institute of Integral Studies and is currently in their creative writing program.
She writes poetry and creative non-fiction and also likes to paint, finding that writing and visual art effectively bring each other into existence. She writes on each canvas before layering on the paint, creating a mood as a stepping off point for the painting to begin.
