About the Artist

Vanessa AliMy name is Vanessa Ali and I love to create paintings that burst with colour, movement and light.

I am enthralled with the beauty of the natural world where I find inspiration in the breathtaking scenes that abound in the prairies, forests, mountains and lakes of Alberta and British Columbia.

I am a self-employed graphic and web site designer with my company Ali Cat Graphics. I love to hike, cycle, paddle board, ski, crochet and knit and I'm passionate about books, movies, podcasts and music.

I am a member of the St. Albert Painter's Guild (SAPG) and a Navigator and member with Mastrius.

 

Artist's Statement

The primary forces in my work are colour and light; they make me swoon and yearn to portray their power and beauty. I explore and capture the negative spaces in a thicket of undergrowth or a forest of trees and study the play of sunlight, reflection and shadow in a landscape. I use oil, acrylic,watercolour, gouache and coloured pencil in my endeavour to capture movement, depth, life and light.
