Great News & Upcoming Alice Events

We’re thrilled that Alice has been featured in many print and online publications, including The Post and Courier and Garden & Gun Magazine! Read on for upcoming live events, and consider our gorgeous book for a mother’s day gift (click here to buy a copy).

Like the artist’s finely detailed works of art, “Alice” fastidiously layers the facts of her life drawn from correspondence and other documents, folding in 200 images of paintings, prints, sketches and photographs on its broad, glossy pages.
