Raised in San Clemente, California Alli began her career as a freelance artist after graduating San Clemente high school in 1980. Contracted by Capistrano unified school disctrict, Alli hand painted the lettering on district school buses. Through this contract Alli maintained the school bus lettering on new and existing buses for ten years.

Continuing her studies at Saddleback Junior College, Alli earned the certificate in Graphic Arts and Design in 1982. Further education included two more years at Los Angeles Trade Tech where she learned the art of Graphic Design with an emphasis on Sign Design and Printmaking.

Alli has been a freelance artist since 1980 and has extensive experience helping people realize their artistic visions. This experience ranges from silk screening and stained glass beveling to framing and matting. Alli's artistic skills have been bolstered by her efforts in the art departments at the Beehive framing shop, Standard Brands and Aaron Brothers.

Ever since working at Schrahm signs in Laguna beach painting signs, Alli has been a sign painter at heart. But her capabilities extend to highly realistic faux finishes, beautiful murals and decoratively festive Christmas windows. Alli's talent and creativity enhance the places touched by her brush.
