About Ali

Ali is a Canberra based artist who loves colour, gardens and animals and has had a life of drawing, painting (acrylics, oils & encaustic) & sculpting. She has had a life-long love affair with glass, and has an extensive collection of hand-blown glass – Australian and Venetian.  The luscious colours and textures available in glass are music for her eyes.

Ali has always been involved in the practical too – having hand-built a home with her late husband, Ali is reasonably comfortable around tools. So the inclusion of superior tools, glues, and grouts has been a natural extension to the range.

Ali made her first mosaic in 2005. Merlin Mosaica was born from the desire to offer choice to the Australian Mosaic artist and hobbyist.

After a professional life in the IT arena, Ali has employed her familiarity with the internet and overseas connections to seek out interesting items that you may find enticing.
