About the Artist - Ali Davies
Ali Davies has been hand painting, dyeing and screenprinting fabric for more than 20 years.
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’s study in Applied Design for Fabric. Since then, all applications of designing for textiles have 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 to the Waikato from Auckland and have worked in the arts sector while raising a family of three children.
In recent years, Ali has developed a range of designs inspired by the local environment and the natural beauty of the Waikato.
