When asked about the most successful thing I've done, I say that it was to take something I loved as a child and turn it into a lifelong career.

Ali is a freelance illustrator currently living in Northern California.

She started her career in animation and games, but has since found her passion in digital illustration and storytelling. She is currently working on an illustrated fantasy novel called "Eislyn", while continuing to freelance for a variety of game and illustration projects.

When she was young, she lived more in her head than in the real world. Everything had a story. The texture in the walls had faces, appliances felt sad when they broke, washcloths turned into mermaids when they got wet, and she spent more time with her dolls than she did making friends. Watching a Disney movie more than once a day was normal. It was somewhere between coloring books and playing dress-up that she discovered a blank sheet of paper and pencils.

When I realized there was a career for art,
I knew I couldn't do anything else.
