These murals were commissioned by Ren Church over several years. Some adorn interior spaces, and others have lived as temporary art installations on the exterior of the building at 184 Broad St in Providence, RI. Many of these murals were created and installed by a team of supporting artists. Lettering on “I Love Providence” and “Let all things be done in love” murals by Christine Errington.
CityLove is an urban mission based in Providence, RI that aims to display God’s love to the city. The logo and branding use cheerful colors and a simple illustration of the Providence skyline.
Festival of Light was a pop-up interactive art installation at Ren Church. Over the course of 5 weeks, 100 volunteers worked to plan and build an 8 room walkthrough experience within the 12,000 square foot building using different Christmas icons to explain the meaning of Christmas. My role in the project was to create the branding, conceptualize the major elements of the art installation, and oversee the teams in charge of executing each project. The installation was open for 3 days and due to the overwhelmingly positive response we plan to create an entirely new version for Christmas 2019.
"Threads" is a collection of large scale pieces inspired by Psalms and created using a mixture of fabric, thread, paint, pencil, and image transfers.
PeaceLove teaches how to use expressive arts and storytelling to create peace of mind. I created these typographic posters to help explain the key points of their philosophy.
Since 2014, PeaceLove has hosted an annual event called “Peace of Mind Storytellers” that gives a platform for new and seasoned speakers to share their mental health stories and how they create peace of mind. It’s a unique event for many reasons, one being the positive and celebratory tone despite the serious mental health focus. My role in these events has been varied, including art direction, collateral design, apparel design, elements of the stage design, and event support behind-the-scenes. PeaceLove Creative Director, Eric Rice, is my main collaborator for the visual elements of these events and he is the one responsible for designing and building the fantastic stage design.
These illustrations were commissioned for Deeply Rooted Magazine to accompany an article called, "Where's My Adventure?" The piece was about comparing our often mundane lives with the glamorous, exciting portrayals of other people's adventurous lives. I used a combination of drawing, fabric collage and stitching to create vignettes for each different character.
This piece was created for Issue 8 of Deeply Rooted Magazine. The story was about shaping the "heart of the home" – lovingly caring for the relationships your home holds – versus being consumed with the small details of day-to-day life. I chose soft colors and comforting "homey" textures to pair with delicate drawing to communicate this emotional/abstract concept.
I created this poster for a craft market at REN Church using hand-drawn elements and textures. The "REN" letters were drawn from the marquee lettering sign on the exterior of the building to help visitors easily identify the location. I used a color palette that I felt was both wintry and autumnal. The first event was such a success that there was a second market the next month, and I created a different colored version of the poster to advertise for that event.
Hope's Woodshop is a furniture company that produces beautiful, handcrafted furniture pieces from locally salvaged trees. They asked me to create their logo, which has been branded on many of their furniture pieces. I also created a fabric banner for their tradeshow displays using an alternate version of the logo.

Plan International approached me for some illustration work for their Holiday 2013 "Gifts of Hope" catalog, including this small insert booklet that shows how your donation impacts those in need.
The illustrations were hand-drawn and accented with texture and a limited color palette. To help communicate that Plan International's Gifts of Hope change lives, I started the illustrations with very minimal color and added more and more color as the family's lives continued to improve.
Leadership Rhode Island commissioned this fun poster for the first State-Wide Hi-Neighbor! Block Party. The poster included illustrated representations of many of the elements that were featured at the event.
Plan International works in developing countries to end the cycle of poverty for children, developing solutions to ensure long-term sustainability. Their holiday "Give Differently" catalog offers opportunities to donate actual items needed by the communities where they work.
For the 2013 Holiday Gift Catalog, I illustrated the items that can be donated over photos from developing countries, showing both the need and the outcome.
"We had a fantastic experience using Alli as our illustrator for our Holiday Gifts of Hope campaign. Alli was reliable, flexible, and produced high-quality work that was far better than we had anticipated. Her personable nature made her a joy to work with. We’re looking forward to partnering with her again in future campaigns!"

These illustrations were created for various articles in SO Rhode Island Magazine.
I was approached to create an illustration for New Orleans Magazine's education column. The article focuses on a switch in New Orleans’ education system, so I used mirrored silhouettes and opposite color palettes to communicate this concept.
Johanna d'Camp is a luxury jewelry company based out of New York and Miami. For their branding, they requested a simple but elegant design and requested that the logo incorporate a butterfly. Drawing inspiration from calligraphy, I developed a logo using the "J" from Johanna's name and designed a stationery set to be printed with letterpress.
These illustrations were created for various articles for Providence Monthly.
A few of my favorite personal pieces created with fabric, paint, pencil and thread.
