Ali’s love of art began at school, where she completed her first oil painting, one which is “still hanging on my father’s wall 45 years later!”.

“After studying physical education and art at college, working as a teacher and a barista, and raising three children, I only had limited time for artistic pursuits.”

However, an unexpected move to Indonesia in 2010 provided Ali with the time and inspiration for new artistic challenges.

Joining an art class run by a successful and highly regarded Indonesian painter allowed her to further develop skills and share experiences with students from many countries.

“My confidence was boosted by participation in group exhibitions and achieving my first sales and commissions,” Ali said.

On returning to Australia, Ali continued painting whenever possible, eventually building a dedicated studio space in her Scotts Head home.

“I mostly work in oils or acrylics, and take on a wide variety of subjects such as landscapes, still lifes and portraits in an impressionist or semi-abstract style.

“The bigger the canvas the better!

“I also enjoy creating al fresco mosaics if I can find a wall big enough.”

Ali regularly exhibits at the Stringer Gallery in Nambucca Heads, with her work also currently on display at the Eungai Creek Buffalo Farm.

“I also exhibit at the Scotts Head Festival and was awarded the Peoples’ Choice award at the 2022 Macksville Show.

“I am available for commissions and examples of my work can be viewed on my Facebook page Ali’s Art.”
