Meet Allison Hunt Cooper!
We are SUPER excited to release the official 22nd Annual KWLA Tournament art, titled “Lady Lure” by Allison Hunt Cooper!
Our 2019 artist, Allison Hunt Cooper, is a former KWLA participant & longtime Big Rock fan! Alley currently lives in Wilmington, NC. Inspired by the beautiful North Carolina coast, she specializes in nautical and coastal themes with tons of southern charm.
Allison graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. During college, she sold commissioned paintings to family and friends. Eventually, she found herself spending more time as a local Wilmington artist
than a student. By word of mouth and of course social media, Alley’s name as a young artist quickly became popular in North Carolina. With her enthusiastic personality and commitment to her work, she decided to turn her painting hobby into a career. “Alley Hunt” paints from her heart and expresses her love for the southern coast through her spectacular color combinations and creative themes. Her lively spirit shines through brilliant, eye-catching hues and imagery.
This piece in particular, “Lady Lure”, is acrylic on canvas & measures 24″ x 30″. “Lady Lure” will be featured on the 22nd Annual KWLA Tournament t-shirts and 2019 merchandise. In addition, the original will be auctioned off for charity at the Awards Banquet on June 15th, 2019. We are thrilled to have Allison on board with us for the 22nd Annual Keli Wagner Lady Angler Tournament!
