Ali is a small-town artist that specializes in window painting, murals, and custom zip code-inspired art. She graduated from Piedmont University in May 2021 with a bachelor’s degree in Health Science. She was born and raised in Franklin, NC, but has spent most of her time in Clayton through the years. She loves having the opportunity to make art that is constantly changing, evolving, and making people smile. She painted her first window in November of 2019, and her work around town grew bit by bit from there! For more information: Instagram - AliWilkinsDesign
