I am Alison Barnsley and I design and make furniture, housewares, and art. I welcome inquiries for custom pieces and may have current works for sale. I earned a BA in art from Yale University and an MA in industrial design from San Jose State University.
My journey has included professional organizing and event planning for individuals; consulting on product design, research and strategy for entrepreneurs and inventors; and providing graphic design, communications & strategic planning for nonprofits. Additionally, I have served as executive director of an educational foundation; worked as communications director for a statewide medical association; and worked in development and communications for a significant grant-making foundation and for a large social service nonprofit.
