Allie is UmeWorks’ newest team member. She is creative, positive, and works hard. Ever since she was young, art and writing have been her biggest passions – it’s all she can see herself doing in the future, in whatever form it may take.
Allie graduated from Millikan High School in Long Beach, but has lived in Bellflower her entire life. She currently lives at home with her mom and two cats, all of whom she adores (though one of her cats doesn’t seem to like that or her very much). She loves nothing more than to curl up on the couch and read or write on her days off.
Though her name is Allison Davis, she responds to either Allison or her nickname, Allie. Both names have been used by her various friends and family, so she has no real preference for which one people use. Her middle name, Mae, is even a name she went by in high school when there were three other Allisons in her class!
Allie is a self-taught graphic artist, but has applied much of the concepts she learned in school to her work. “I took an art class for all four years of high school, and a lot of the tools and tricks I learned doing physical art can be applied to digital art as well,” she says. “I’m big on the rule of thirds, as well as complementary colors and the use of positive and negative space.”
Allie has volunteered at a hodgepodge of places, including Samaritan’s Purse, the SPCALA, and Emmanuel Reformed Church in Paramount. Through her volunteer work, she’s learned a lot about teamwork, patience, and working with both children and animals.
Allie loves working at UmeWorks and enjoys the calm and relaxing atmosphere of the job. “It’s such a chill place. I have social anxiety, and a fast-paced and busy environment makes me very anxious. But here, it’s quiet and calm, and I can work for my entire shift and not feel anxious once. Plus, I get to do what I love, which makes working here even better.” Allie is dedicated to doing her best here at UmeWorks and is always looking to improve.
Welcome to UmeWorks, Allie!
