Alice was fortunate enough to be trained at Camberwell school of painting.

Fortunate because she received the last few years of traditional teaching, studying observational skills based on drawing and tonal work and looking at the masters.

Alice has been teaching at the St Ives School of Painting, and exhibiting for over two decades.

I think Professor Richard Demarco OBE best sums up Alices work in a piece he wrote for an exhibition: "her objects have at one and the same time a prosaic and dramatic nature, and symbolise the presence of human beings, and the mystery of their daily lives.

She instills an English flavour into the still life tradition, and in her profound understanding and joyful handling of oil paint, she can be likened to Winifred Nicholson and the school of St Ives.
