Ali J is an artist/illustrator whose work is whimsical, dreamy and invokes the imagination. Her characters are modern, fashionable and often feature red rosy cheeks. Each character has a unique personality and style that often reminds others of someone they know.
Ali J believes that everyone should be able to own her artwork and access it outside of a gallery. This leads her artworks to be presented in a variety of formats and reproduced onto various products including prints, greeting cards, pocket mirrors and jewellery.
Her art has been exhibited worldwide and she has created work for clients such as Peppermint Magazine, Sony/BMG, Oxford University Press and the Australian Copyright Council. She is currently illustrating her first book, a recipe book, slated for release in May 2012.
Wilderness is a series of artworks revolving around the idea of the modern world co-existing with the woodlands that exist in the artist's dreams. Inspired by The Wishing Chair series by Enid Blyton, the artworks consist of a series of portraits of characters that live within a world equally inhabited by human and animals.
