Aly is an illustrator from Colorado. A lover of animals and mythical creatures, her paintings often feature birds, rabbits, dragons, and phoenixes. The current focus of her practice examines the intersections between cultural traditions, tattooing, and storytelling. The legacies of Traditional Japanese tattooing, and master artists like Horiyoshi III and Horitomo, are just a few of her greatest inspirations. She hopes to continue learning about tattoo cultures around the world. Aly’s personal work also explores a variety of contemporary and historical references, often reflecting upon her Taiwanese-American identity. Outside of art making, she is a bookworm, growing yogi, avid hiker, and baker of all things sweet.
