Artist Ali Koehler An Inspiration to Others, Herself
"Ali Koehler is an artist and singer. Her paintings have earned her national honors and have been purchased for inclusion in private and corporate collections. One was selected to appear on the label of an Imagery Estate wine. Just last month, the 32-year-old Sebastopol woman was invited be an artist-in-residence at the prestigious Chalk Hill Artist Residency Program at the Warnecke Ranch in Healdsburg. Koehler is among the first developmentally disabled artists to be invited to be an Artist in Residence at the Warnecke Ranch on historic Chalk Hill. 'The great thing about Ali is that she had the self-confidence and perspective of herself as a professional artist,' said Alice Sutro, who oversees the Chalk Hill Artist Residency program and who also co-chairs the Collector's Circle for Becoming Independent."
