Alice grew up in a very creative New England family. This grounding was essential to her later appreciation of fine art developed during the six years she lived in the Middle East and Europe. Once her children had grown and family obligations lessened, Alice had the chance to sharpen the skills evidenced in childhood.
After several years of watercolor lessons from a myriad of local artists, Alice became very interested in a particular iconographic school. She adopted the traditional Russian/Byzantine approach (wood/linen/egg tempera/gold leaf), and continues to attend ongoing yearly workshops in that medium, at a Franciscan Monastery in New York State. One of her icons recently earned a Second Place Ribbon in a People's Choice Award. In addition to the watercolors, acrylics and Icons, she has branched into enhanced digital photography adapting her own photographs to another art form with digital painting.
Alice had been an active member of the Prince William Art Society (PWAS) from 2000 until 2014. During these years she held the following positions, President (4 years) Treasurer (8 years). In addition she also created a Newsletter, helped to develop a website, and was website coordinator.
Alice organized Art shows and in 2007, Alice proposed that the Prince William Art Society expand its goals to include raising money to award a scholarship to students within the Prince William County school system. The board brought the proposal before the membership, who voted to support the scholarship.
In 2014, Alice decided to retire from the art organization and the business which she and her husband owned and operated for 30 years. She now meets with several friends to paint (write) religious icons. Alice resides in walking distance of Occoquan, Virginia.
