Biography

Hello Well I studied art for three years after school but failed to impress my art tutors. Infact I failed my mocks several times. Art was my passion and I was very much into surrealism back then (late 1980s). It obviously wasn't working out for me and my tutors convinced me to take up photography instead. After gaining a BA degree in photography and mixed media I found myself opening a studio and working alongside a marketing company. Work was varied and fun but the paint brushes have always called me. It's taken a LOT of practice but finally I feel as though I'm getting somewhere. So this year I will be dedicating more time to my art, not sure where I'm going with it but I'm looking forward to spending more time at my easel. POL is a great find, keeps the motivational juices flowing. It's great to see such a wide variety of artwork in one place. Alicia
