My name is Ali, I’m a 3D fine artist trained in Metal Art in Edinburgh and was part of a Women’s Welding Collective there for many years. I created intricate and time consuming sculptures and bespoke furniture. I’m curious about texture, shadow, and surface contrast
I’m also very involved with Community Arts and children’s creativity. I spent six years in South America running grass roots recycled design projects with women’s groups, including selling our products at The Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City.
I work a lot in the UK running projects & workshops with non profits and schools where I also like giving young children power tools and solder irons to work with.
I live in North Wales now with a view of trees and alpacas. After illness and a time to pause, I’m moving away from the large scale metalwork and creating a new body of work on a smaller scale using wire, wood, fabric and embroidery, incorporating movement and texture. I’m interested to see where this latest journey takes me.
