About the Artist
I'm Ali Hansen, a contemporary illustrator based in Warwickshire, UK. My work consists primarily of watercolour creations within a wide range of subject matter. I have also worked for many years as a fashion illustrator within the UK and internationally. Originally trained as a fashion designer and illustrator at the University of Westminster in London, I have now returned to my first love which is fashion and lifestyle illustration.
I work primarily in pen and ink and watercolours with some added digital effects using Photoshop. I currently sell limited edition prints of my work at artisan markets across the Midlands. My work has been described as fun, clever, different and colourful. I see things in modern life which I find stylish and cool and I love to celebrate everyday things in a whimsical watercolour pop art style. I enjoy putting intelligence and thought into my art pieces and love creating different narratives. I also love to include a sense of humour in my pieces. Having grown up in the UK I also think of my art as quintessentially British with a very iconic look to it.
My past clients include Harrods, Selfridges, Elie Saab, Juicy Couture, The Telegraph, Missoni, the BBC, Carven, La Redoute, Marks and Spencer, V and A Museum, Brides Magazine, Wella, and The Natural History Museum amongst others.
In early 2023 I will be opening my own art shop online, so keep an eye out for that. Please drop me a line if you have any questions and I would love to chat with you!
