Alana House Art Prints – Painting with Purpose


High quality giclée prints of art created by the women of Alana House.

All proceeds support PACT’s work with people who have experienced trauma, abuse or disadvantages.

Alana House, PACT’s community project in Reading, uses a holistic and trauma-informed approach to support and empower women facing multiple disadvantages. Alana House welcomes all women who feel they need support.


These pieces of artwork were produced through the Painting with Purpose project at Alana House led by professional artist Chrissie Hawkes. Through these sessions, attendees learned how to use colour, texture and blending to create striking pieces of art. Starting with three primary colours – red, yellow and blue – each woman mixed their own paints and added light and dark to create a range of colours, tints and shades. Using a variety of textures and techniques such as scraping, scratching and stamping, they created beautiful intuitive designs which expressed their creativity.


One woman who took part in the project said:


“Making the art for me was something liberating, it enabled me to clear my mind and leave all my stress, worries and anxieties on that piece of canvas. You don’t always realise it at first, but when you become open to creativity, it enables you to find creative solutions for all your problems and situations.”


Each piece of art has been reproduced through a high quality giclée printing process on textured fine art paper.
