"Being an artist means to forever be healing your own wounds, while at the same time, endlessly exposing them"
With a background in disability case management, ministry, music, counselling and support work with adults living with a variety of challenges, Ali brings a healing perspective to all forms of art she creates.
Ali has been using art as part of her healing journey for over 40 years both personally and professionally. She has been writing songs, poems and stories as well as using painting and photography as avenues to release trauma and bring hope.
After sustaining a traumatic brain injury  years ago, Ali needed to reinvent herself and has now earned a diploma in Holistic Integrated Creative Art Therapy HICAT as part of her personal healing journey. What started as a way to finding holistic ways to heal her own brain, Ali discovered ways to share with others in their healing process.
Ali continues painting and writing music and poems and stories and is now also a best selling co author in three Collaborative books. Two through WOW Women's series and the third as part of Rebecca Harrison's Family Tree stories, this book is full of wonderful Mother Son stories and is also a best seller on Amazon.
Ali is so excited to announce that she has written her own book;
Titled "The Art of Healing Trauma; Finding Joy through Creativity, Spirituality and Forgiveness"
Which will be released on October 7th, 2021 through Influence Publishing
Ali has also been writing children’s books and partnering with her niece Carly Fallon an amazing artist who is illustrating their "Don't be scared, be prepared" Collection. Empowering stories to help children process a variety of challenges and finding ways to make great choices and see their own strengths and gifting.
Diagnosed with PTSD 20 years ago and then with a Traumatic Brain injury 6 years ago, Ali's message is clear, creativity heals, there is always hope and no matter how dark the night, there is always a dawn.
