Ali Herrmann is a mixed-media painter based in Troy, NY. Raised in the bucolic Berkshires of rural Massachusetts, Herrmann developed an early interest in the raw beauty of the natural landscape, the ever-changing seasons, and the rich flora and fauna of the region.

A lover of organic and biological sciences, her work explores cellular structures as the origin for her abstract paintings. Creating what she terms ‘micro-biome landscapes,’ Herrmann engages with the natural world as the inspiration for the color combinations and repetitive patterns in her paintings, monoprint collages, and original books while simultaneously exploring concepts of bacterial and unicellular structures in her art.
Throughout her nearly 30-year career as an artist, Herrmann has been awarded multiple grants including the New York State Council for the Arts (2023, 2022); A.R.T. fund, NY (2020); Martha Boschen Porter Fund Grant from the Berkshire Taconic Foundation, MA (2019, 2014); and a Massachusetts Cultural Council grant (2017).
She has exhibited widely including Ford Studios, VA; The Arts Center of the Capital Region, NY; Albany Center Gallery, NY; Emerge Gallery, NY; and The Berkshire Museum, MA. Her work is in the permanent collections of RCA Screen Gems Productions, NY; Sony Pictures Entertainment, NY; Red Lion Inn, MA; as well as several private collections. Artist residencies include the Millay Colony, NY (2020); Main Street Arts, NY (2017); and the Vermont Studio School, VT (2007). She studied Fine Arts (Printing & Painting) at Bennington College, VT.
