I'm Alli Smith, an artist residing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
My work exists in a world of humor, mischief, and disturbance. I utilize playful mark making, a vibrant color palette, and choose to distort the mythical yet humanlike creatures living within my work. They serve as tools of transformation and emotional catharsis, turning parts of my life that are confusing, painful, or embarrassing into a mesh of characters experiencing these same feelings amongst themselves and each other. I aim to create a contradictory feeling of lightheartedness and sorrowfulness.
