As a young girl Alice has always remembered being drawn to using her hands. From helping her dad work on cars to attending origami classes, she has always felt the impulse to create. Growing up in New York during the 80’s, Alice was exposed to the growth of hip-hop and its culture. Her traditional upbringing and this new emerging subculture helped shape her style and aesthetic. Her work often illustrates the rawness and spontaneity of urban culture. Alice’s work depicts the struggles of urban life and the simultaneous chaos and order of the city. Her art is often used as a platform to voice social and political issues of our time; the work illustrates the way she views the world around her. Alice has a strong desire to create art that is accessible to all people. From galleries to the streets she aims to show her vision to the world. She is enthusiastic about producing functional art and has worked with product designs ranging from clothing, accessories and snow/skate products. Her art continues to be an outlet for self-expression and communication of ideas.
