Meet Ali!Ali has been with Pinot's Palette since we first opened our doors in February of 2014.
My name is Ali Blackwood and I'm an an artist and graphic designer from Spokane. As a child, I was always drawn to art and literature, and spent most of my early school days getting in trouble for either talking nonstop, or 'sneakily' reading books or drawing pictures under my desk when I was supposed to be doing math. After my amazing high school art teacher inspired me to make a career out of being creative, I attended SFCC for Graphic Design and currently work as a graphic designer at the Inlander. I instruct at Pinot's Palette on the evenings and weekends, and I absolutely love it! Sharing my love for painting with our guests is always a joy, and since my day job keeps me in front of a computer all day, it's a nice change to get my hands dirty with some real paint. When I'm not working, I love to paint, cook, play video games, and spend time with my husband and cats.
