Ali Cavanaugh



[+] Bio | Comments |

Ali Cavanaugh was born in St. Louis in 1973 and has worked as a professional artist for 14 years. Her compositions are strong and intuitive, thanks not only to being a wife and mother but also to the variations in her experience—such as hearing loss—that made her adapt to and recreate the world around her.

 

Cavanaugh was awarded the prestigious Presidential Scholarship from the David Wolcott Kendall Foundation, a four-year, full-tuition merit scholarship. This allowed her to study at Parsons School of Design in New York City and Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where Cavanaugh earned a bfa with an emphasis in painting in 1995. In 1996, she co-founded the New School Academy of Fine Art in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Through the mid- to late 1990s, Cavanaugh established a vast following of students and collectors and became one of West Michigan’s most sought after private instructors. In 2000, upon relocating to Santa Fe, New Mexico to establish her work in the town’s world-renowned art scene, she also developed her watercolor technique.

 

She has had solo and group exhibitions in more than 40 galleries throughout the U.S., and Cavanaugh’s art has been featured in publications such as American Artist Watercolor, Watercolor Artist, Southwest Art magazine, Art Calendar magazine, International Artist Magazine, and The Daniel Smith Art Supply Catalogue. Perhaps because of her work’s infectious energy combined with deep reflection, her collectors are particularly devoted. Her work has won numerous awards, received extensive recognition, and is featured in more than 300 private and corporate collections throughout the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Portugal, Switzerland, Singapore, and Australia. She now lives in the St. Louis area with her husband and two children.
