Alice Artist Studiowww.ArtPal.com/AliceArtist
Hello, I am a Fine Artist and Illustrator specializing in Pastel Paintings and Pen & Ink Renderings. I attended the Chicago Academy of Fine Art, in a Commercial Art and Design program back in the 60's. I then became a publications layout and design artist working at the former Wieboldt's Department Store in Chicago, then at Playboy Magazine, as well as publications at The University of Vermont and in Sarasota, Florida. I always maintained my love of doing portraits of people and pets on the side, while working full time at my career in publications. Now, since my family is raised, I have cut back to working 3 days a week. This has allowed me to return to my first love, doing art the other 4 days. I am now expanding my pastel portrait and paintings to include landscapes and beach or seascapes, since I live in Clearwater, Florida. I have found several local pastel courses that have helped me refresh my style. I also have joined the Pastel Society of Tampa Bay and have been a frequent contributor to their site. I now focus on portraits of people or pets, and beach scenes or landscapes through custom orders. I've had recent experience in Plein Air meet ups, and won first prize at the Beach House Gallery in Dunedin, Florida. Now, I am finally able to be "Alice Artist".
