A note from Ali Hansen
“Shadows snapped from leafless branches onto the snow. The Stranger in a hooded cloak shuddered against the wind…”
I moved to Michigan eleven years ago, and discovered a wonderland of real and imaginary characters in my own backyard. Ali-ce in Winterland is the garden’s story from the first fallen leaf in August to the first snowfall in December.
The work in this show was completed in the last two years. I have enjoyed reconnecting with printmaking and love working with fabric and collage. I completed this work at the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center where I have learned to set type and print on the letterset press.
I would like to thank Cynthia and Larry, and the rest of the team at Future Life Now for the opportunity to share my story with you.
After thirty years in Cincinnati, Ali Hansen moved to southwest Michigan to “retire” and enjoy sunsets on Lake Michigan, pursue her artwork, and as a surprise, begin writing stories. This work is the first combination—writing, illustrating, and publishing—her own words.
Ali lives in Benton Harbor with her life partner, Marilee Panna, their dog, Wyeth Blue and Keillor the cat.
