Alice came to Somerset in 1974, and moved to the Blackdowns in1995. She trained at Somerset College, Taunton and graduated in 1993 with a BA in Fine Art Textiles from Goldsmiths, London. Alice joined the arts education charity, Spaeda, as artistic director in 2001 and now works between Spaeda, based at Hestercombe, and her studio on the Cotley Estate, Wambrook.
A collector of coloured scraps, Alice recycles and layers textiles and paper. Wood-dye, emulsion and poly-filler, a shopping list or a coloured scrap combine with oils, pastels and stitch to pin point the perfect colour. Domestic and discarded materials celebrate the magic in the un-remarked and every day.
