About me

Trained at the Royal School of Needlework, Alice has experience working professionally both as an Artist and in the fashion industry. Her own work is predominantly concept based and autobiographical, conveying ideas of mending, healing, growth, and the transformative power of cloth. Additionally, the work plays on contrasts and juxtapositions, both physical and metaphorical. Alice is also a firm believer in the meditative and therapeutic values of stitch.
