Alice’s artistic side began with writing. Drawing and painting came from the desire to see the characters she wrote and those she read about come to life.
“It’s fascinating to look inside people’s minds,” she says, “and try to put that chaos and energy into a single piece of art.”
Alice sees her work as a tale of two halves: “A lot of the commercial work I do is colourful, shiny, bright and exciting. In contrast, I find my personal work tends to be darker, more muted and raw. Fantasy and semi-realism seems to be the thread that binds them both together, and I’m quite happy to have this yin and yang.”
1 STEALING SOULS “I painted this just for personal development, a long time ago. The idea was to depict how a shamanic creature is able to steal people’s souls. Painting muscles and special effects is fun!”
2 NAMI FANART “One of my final projects while still at art school. It was extremely interesting and challenging to work on, trying to capture an existing design.”
3 CAPTURE OF THE WIND “This was an illustration for a book cover by G&L Tomas. The idea behind this character was to try and portray the feeling of a powerful mermaid or siren with mystical powers.”
