With a background in textile design, Ali now works as an environmental artist from her studio on the Northumberland coast.
She connects art with science to highlight important issues facing our fragile oceans and vulnerable marine life.
She says the underwater world provides a never-ending supply of inspiration for her work. Things like the organic, chaotic patterns of shoals of fish, the shimmer of their scales, the way seaweed sways in the current, how barnacles arrange themselves on rocks.
She works mainly in watercolours, using the unpredictability of the paint layers to build depth....and it's usually in shades of blue, which she's obsessed with. This now defines the style of her unique artwork. Her emphasis is on illustration and she combines traditional and modern digital techniques.
Recent works include her #The100DayProject Save Our Seahorses selection.
