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 the Creative Lead of the Inlander graphic design department and Art Director of Inlander Health & Home magazine.

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 rare moments of free time, I enjoy painting, paddle boarding, cooking, reading and watching sci-fi, playing video games, doing puzzles, eating candy and spending time with my husband and cats.
