She has a B.A. in Studio Art with a minor in Communication Studies from the University of Puget Sound. The subject matter of Ally’s work is heavily influenced by the environment in which she creates. While at the University of Puget Sound, she connected her critical interest in film media with her printmaking. Her senior thesis, Moments, inspired by the unforgiving Pacific Ocean, was an installation of 40+ polyester plate lithographs.
