How does she do it?

A longtime painter, Ali’s artistic output shifted quickly after she received her first iPhone as a birthday present in 2010. Using her phone’s camera and a suite of editing apps (Filterstorm, Snapseed, Mextures, and Juxtaposer are her favorites), Ali now creates vivid dreamscapes that blend the boundaries of fantasy and reality, often starring one of her two children.

The vision is all her own

“My kids, Gabe and Pippin, are usually the subjects of my images which make them very personal,” Ali writes in a blog post. “I like to tell a story, reminiscent of fairy tales, with both light and darkness present.”
