Ali Saren is an abstract mixed media artist out of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Ali enjoys an approach to mixed-media abstract art that allows her to take chances and continue her exploration and integration of various styles, methods, and mediums. Her inspiration comes from nature, architecture, metal, history, color, and every day chaos.

"As cliché as it is, art really does imitate life. In life and in art you have to be 'ok' with two main concepts; Risk and Temporary Beauty.

In my practice I have learned to appreciate a moment of beauty, a moment of perfection, with a small realization that this may not last, it may change, grow, morph into something even more beautiful or something, well, quite less beautiful. Take risks. Experiment and be ok with an outcome. Be ok with failure. Be ok with mistakes. Be ok with success. Move on. Move up. Just move. Just grow. Just learn. Just live."

Ali's work can also be viewed and purchased at
"This and That" Gallery in Carrboro.
