Alicia has been interested in art since she was a child. She attended Arizona State University majoring in art. In her early 30’s she had the opportunity to attend art school. She was living in New Orleans at the time and attended the John McCrady Art School. It was a fine arts private school located in the French Quarter with excellent local and nationally known instructors. The school taught oils, pastels, watercolors and many other design and art mediums. She was selected Student of the Year for the two years she attended. After art school she has entered art shows winning ribbons.
She has continued to paint in oils and watercolors over the years. Presently she teaches watercolor, acrylics, mixed media and oil painting in Mesa. Her interests have changed from painting realistically to exploring more mediums and styles.
She recently received the Artwork of the Year Award by the Mesa Art League. Her paintings have received awards at the Art Shows held by the Art Department of Dreamland Villa. She is also a juried member of the Sedona Art Center and recently sold two paintings from shows at the Center. She is also a juried member of the Arizona Art Alliance and recently had a painting accepted in their Holiday Juried show held last October.
Alicia also makes handmade jewelry and presently has her jewelry at the Mesa Art Center Artist Coop store.
