An artist, dreamer and a creator
Ali is a thirty something mother of two (almost three) children. She spends her nights painting and her days making with her kids underfoot and wouldn't have life any other way. She is a country girl by heart and is currently working on building their dream house and art studio in southwest Western Australia on a hill with an incredible view of the forest.
She has always been creative in some way shape or form. Although it wasn't until she graduated high school that she realised she could actually follow her dream.
She studied art but at the time it was focused on contemporary themes and she struggled with not being able to paint, create portraits, create landscapes and desired to learn traditional techniques. After graduation she rebelled against what she was taught and sought out knowledge on how to create the art that was constantly on her mind.
Her primary technique is to collage vintage book pages onto canvas, and then paint or draw over that. This creates a double image and layers of meaning. Often she repaints over old canvases, and is not hesitant to use bold colours or create vivid imagery.
Her obsession lies in characters with red rosy cheeks and bringing her imagination to life on canvas, paper or fabric. Each of those characters has a voice and a tale to tell, and she works until the very early hours of the morning to ensure they can tell that story.
Her creativity has extended to art exhibitions, books, clothing, CD's, magazines and so much more. The only limit is the imagination.
Clients include The Women's Weekly, Peppermint Magazine, Sony/BMG, Oxford University Press, Roc Candy, Jem Sportswear and Seven Stories Press.
