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.”
