Growing up in and around New York City, Alli has always known she wanted to be an illustrator. When she was very little, Alli would schlep huge illustration annuals home from the library and pore over every magazine that came in the mail. Not much has changed over the years.
Alli graduated from Parsons School of Design and got her start in illustration with a full page color illustration for The Anchorage Daily News. Her career continued to grow with illustration assignments from The New York Times, Travel + Leisure and Seventeen Magazine. In 2006 Alli was chosen to illustrate Neiman Marcus’ “100 Years of Fashion”, a limited edition leather-bound journal, and in 2007 she created a special illuminated baby gift card for Target. In 2008, Alli's "flat family" graced the banners that hung proudly in New York City's Fashion District for three years. Alli’s illustrations also appear on a limited edition kate spade bag, Tiffany & Co.'s coloring cards, and she is the creator of the Barney's New York Baby logo.
Alli is proud to have been the sole illustrator of Real Simple Family from 2006-2009, for which she won a Society of Publication Design Merit Award. She just completed Bergdorf Goodman's Spring 2012 ads for their "Little BG" children's department, and is working on a circus-themed coloring book for Neiman Marcus.
Alli divides her time between New York City and St. Petersburg, Florida. She enjoys visiting with friends, doing drawings that make people laugh, and wearing lots of bracelets. Her little dog Nino is the boss of her.
