Alison the Artist

Alison Baxter has been Lifestyle Consultant at Parkland Riverview in New Brunswick for almost seven years. With a keen mind for marketing and a passion for the residents living at Parkland Riverview, Alison is a valued team member for Parkland Retirement Living. Outside of her role as Lifestyle Consultant, Alison is also a talented painter. 

Alison started painting with her mother when she was a little girl and has picked it up again in the last couple of years. ” I found I had more time on my hands, since my son stopped playing hockey, we are not at the rink all the time anymore!” 

Most of Alison’s paintings are oil paintings, but she also uses acrylic on larger canvases. Some of her favorite creations so far are Boy on the Dunes, which is an abstract painting of a photo taken of her son when he was two years old at the Dunes in Bouctouche, NB, as well as Beach Stairs and Lady in Red. Alison is particularly proud of Lady in Red, of which she has prints available for purchase, and has already sold a couple. “I seem to like to paint with the color red a lot.”

One of Shannex’s core values is Great People and we encourage our team members to be the best at what they do, and to never stop learning and growing, both professionally and personally. For Alison, that includes her hobby of painting. 

“I like to try something different in each painting I do, to learn new techniques – I always want to be learning.”
