Artist statement

Alice is an ageing (69) disabled (MS) artist.

Trained in Textile Art in London in the mid 1960’s, she now focuses her practice on mapping the deterioration of her body as a result of ageing and MS.  It is, however, essential that her decline is mirrored in the natural world, and depicted with beauty and humour.

Photography and video are favoured media, whilst selected photographic images are recreated as textile pieces.
