about me

Hey there, I’m Ali Blackwood! I’m an artist and graphic designer in Spokane, Washington.

During the day you’ll find me at Inlander Headquarters, where I do a bunch of graphic design-ings as Art Director of Inlander Health & Home magazine, and the Creative Lead of the Inlander graphic design department.

When I’m not at the Inlander you might find me on stage at Pinot’s Palette, instructing painting classes filled with tipsy novice artists.

In my free time, I enjoy painting, paddle boarding, sci-fi, video games, eating candy and spending time with my husband and cats.
