Ally lives and works in Ridgway, Colorado. She grew up back East in New York. She loves art, mountains, her family, yoga, and figuring out how to be a human being. She works as an artist, yoga teacher, and free-lance graphic designer.
A note from the artist:
Painting is how I can best tell the truth. It is a messy unpredictable process for me. When the flow is happening, I know I’m supposed to paint. When it’s not, it’s excruciating. I’m learning to paint regardless and wait for the moments that it makes sense in, and just ride the rest of them out. I’m also learning to do this in my life. Art has to surprise me in some way for it to interest me.
MOONS show is hanging at Telluride Arts Headquarters, December 2018/January 2019. The show was inspired by a painting she did for Little Red Riding Hood, Pink Moon.
