Hi, Im Ali. Im an artist based in Philadelphia that specializes in public murals.

My passion is creating high quality, vibrant dreamscape murals. I work with clients to collaboratively bring their vision to life.

I also offer workshops and other creative services. Follow me on Instagram to stay connected to see what’s going on in the studio.

Thanks for taking an interest in my work! xo

That’s a wrap! The Morris Home mural at Philly AIDS Thrift is complete! The dedication is today at 1pm!!!!💓 @rhdmorrishome @phillyaidsthrift

This mural started 2+ years ago, so it feels a bit like a fever dream to finally see it up on the wall and bring it to a close.

I haven’t posted a single thing about the production so I’m looking forward to reviewing old photos and videos and sharing all about this one! (It was painted last summer in my studio!) xoxo

Wondering how this tiny thing is gonna look blown up. Hopefully awesome. Probably, most definitely awesome. Updates when I have ‘em! 🌸 ...

#tulaforscale 🐕 Did this LITTLE design & painting combo for a client a couple weeks ago so it can be scanned, printed, and installed as a huge decal mural of sorts.

100% think I would have spent the same amount of time on the actual wall size art (but that wasn’t an option) (painting small is the 😈 to me)

And now, in addition to the printed mural, I have this mini mural / nice size painting that I’m brainstorming what to do with.

I’m waiting to get word on the install, so updates to come 🙂

‘Best on the block’ and truly the best people to work with 🖤@cleaversphilly 🥩 🔪

Nothin’ new here, didn’t post a final shot of this one from a few weeks ago. Now if I could get myself to post every project I did & didn’t share from 2020 on … 😂

My sandy little toot angel is 3! 🥰 We’re celebrating with beach romps, naps, & lots of snacks 💕@tulathegreat ...

It’s my birthday, and I’m too old for pulling all nighters outside in the cold for mural painting … but I did it anyway. ♥️🖤 🤍

Thank you to everyone that has reached out and for all the birthday love. It has been an especially difficult time, so it is nice to be thought of. I appreciate you.

Also, both of my parents referred to me as peanut today so I’m feeling like a very young 37 year old 🥜 ☺️ (I mean 25 …)

Pink. I know you’re surprised 😂💗

Thanks for the million empty butter containers @k_oday_r lol. #reuseable

Very Monday like of that one little stray bristle 😠😆 ...

Shapes and paint strokes, a love story 💓 ...

The palette in this mural section matches Tula’s bed prettaaay, prettaaay good. Can’t keep it though - it gets installed today! I did a great job with the in progress shots 🙄🤦🏻‍♀️ jk, there are none. Priority rush jobs mean I ain’t got time fo dat! ...

Pretty happy that I’ve followed through with a yoga practice first thing every morning recently … with the exception of yesterday because I woke up with an “emotion hangover” (even more reason not to skip yoga 😬).

SO, on that note, if you’re interested in a yoga practice & you live or vacation ‘the shore’ I’m a part of a great new yoga collective called @thecoastalyogacollective 🧘🏻‍♀️ We’re a group of friends and yoga instructors offering concierge yoga and wellness.

Check us out if you’re local or vacationing this Summer! Link is in my bio or visit us here: @thecoastalyogacollective!

Tula is only available by special request 😂🐕 #greatdanelife

So first, this feels very awkward and vulnerable … this is my ex. And second, I have 3 paintings (of exes) in a show at @varwestgallery in Milwaukee curated by @andreaguzzetta. OPENING TONIGHT 6-9pm!

The show is called “Before We Broke Up: An intimate look at love lost” 💔

I’m grateful and honored to have work in the show. It’s been forever since I’ve exhibited my work. When the opportunity came my way, I literally pulled these out of storage, dusted them off, and shipped them to Milwaukee in hopes that someone would find love for one of these paintings and in turn take these exes off my hands. Thank you so much to @varwestgallery & @andreaguzzetta for including my work.

🎨 To inquire, purchase, and view other work in the show: contact @varwestgallery

Little extra note here about this specific painting (and not the person): this was one of the last oil paintings I created. I discovered murals around this time and my ideas about art changed, as well as my chosen medium.
