Ali Palin received her BFA from the Maine College of Art in 2015. She currently lives and works in Montpelier, Vermont.

My primary interest is in the ethereal, that which exists beyond this realm which can only be sensed, and that which seems too perfect to exist here. I see my painting practice as spell work, a process of intentional exchange between the inner and outer worlds. Yet behind enchanting illusions I aim to cast shadows of doubt, disorientation, and disintegration. As one who wanders into the land of Faerie and never returns home, there is something intoxicating about loss.
