Predominantly influenced by her love of landscapes and brave colour combinations – (not to mention a rich tapestry of nostalgic child hood travel experiences to draw upon) -British born Ali McNabney-Stevens has quickly and notoriously become one of the most collectible emerging artists within Australia, whilst simultaneously attracting worldwide attention for her art practises.
Ali’s well-trained eye for colour and composition finds her executing abstract work that celebrates historically important Ulster landmarks alongside the everyday and ordinary. It is seemingly this dualism of the important yet the simple that strikes a chord with the artist, and the admirer.
“I always feel as if I am working on the edge of something, with my sole aim being to give life to the painting. The painting takes me where it wants to go.”
As a feature artist in many leading interior editorial spreads, international blogs, and of late regular guest appearances on primetime National TVC- it is fair to say that Ali continues to make her mark on the art world.
