Alicia combines printmaking and painting techniques in her unique mixed media paintings that are inspired by nature, with a focus on modernizing traditional subjects through style and composition.
Alicia paints and prints designs on book pages, scraps, copy paper, decorative paper and homemade paper. Layers of pattern are added using various textures such as bubble wrap, tiles, sponges, rubber stamps, stencils, and gel press prints. The papers are torn and applied to an acrylic painting using gel medium, resulting in a somewhat pixelated appearance.
A New Jersey native, Alicia is an artist, calligrapher, and instructor at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey in Summit.
