About The Artist

Ali Cockrean exhibits nationally and her work appears in collections in Europe and Canada. Born in 1962, Ali became an artist at the age of 15, when she began exhibiting and selling work. While she is largely self-taught, Ali’s art education includes formal tuition, most recently at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design and Slade School of Fine Art.

“My inspiration to paint always comes directly from within. It is the emotion and mood that is generated by a specific event; visual or auditory experience that forms the essence of the work, rather than the event or experience itself. Painting ‘feelings’ is always a challenge. I firmly believe that in order to consistently produce fresh, innovative and exciting work, artists must constantly challenge their own boundaries and push themselves beyond their comfort zones to discover their true abilities and potential.”

Ali Cockrean - Surrey Artists - Three Shades
At the moment, my preoccupation is with exploring how colour, line and form influence our reactions to familiar places or objects. In particular, I am exploring how far it is possible to abstract an image, yet still retain the essence of the original in the mind’s eye. What happens when the form is constant, but the colours change from those we traditionally expect? How does this affect our mood or emotive response?

These themes are common to all my recent work.”
