American artist Ali Cavanaugh was born in St Louis, 1974. Her attention to visual world started when she was 15 months old, after she lost much of her hearing. She learned to depend on body language and lip-reading at very early age. You can easily see her sensitivity to gestures and postures of people around her by looking at her works. She creates her own technique by painting with watercolor on panels made of kaolin clay. She uses her little daughter as her model at her latest works.
