About the Artist - Ali Davies
Ali Davies has been decorating fabric for over 20 years; this includes hand painting, dyeing and screen printing.
Her love of repeating patterns and colour have given her a way of exploring the interior space through fabric. Ali’s only training in this area was through Auckland University of Technology in 1994 where she completed a year of study in Applied Design for Fabric. Since then all applications of designing for textiles has been self-taught.
Ali also does wood cuts on paper and applies this to her designs for textiles. In 2001 Ali and husband John moved into the Waikato from Auckland and have both been working in the arts sector while raising a family of three children.
In the last couple of years Ali has been developing a range of designs inspired by the local environment and natural beauty of the Waikato.
