love affair only six years in the making will be captured for eternity.
Artist Alison Tedesco’s passion for Frankston will be reflected in a series of paintings including our laneways, the Frankston Mechanics Institute, the Grand Hotel, street scenes and more. She is excited to work on her pieces thanks to an Artist Project Grant from Frankston City Council. “I moved from Sydney to Frankston six years ago to be closer to relatives who lived in the area. My family and I have not ‘looked back’ since. We love the beaches here, which we showcase when friends and family come to visit us,” Alison said. The inspiration for her art project include Frankston’s significant landmarks, the pier and bay. “I’m proud to live in Frankston and I know its community is, too. This particular avenue of art I hope represents all that Frankston is and what we have come to love about our suburb and surrounds,” Alison said. While Alison has explored mediums including oils and acrylics, her medium of choice is watercolour. She is keen to share her love of Frankston with the wider community and contribute to a sense of pride.
