Alice finds it hard to define herself as a painter, weaver or mixed media artist, but she would consider herself as a Maori contemporary artist, exploring life creatively through as many art forms as she can. Each art form inspires and compliments the others and they allow her to stay motivated and focused on her passion. She has a deep passion for creating artworks that inspire, challenge or initiate change. Alice studied Maori Design and Art at Te Wananga O Raukawa in Otaki, NZ (2002) and started her journey into the expression of art in Christchurch where she exhibited and sold her works nationally and internationally.
In 2011 Alice and her family moved to Brisbane after experiencing both major earthquakes in Christchurch, where they settled on the Sunshine Coast. Alice has created and developed her own solo exhibitions, workshops and events throughout NZ and Australia and has helped establish arts collectives and groups that she still actively participates in. She has also run successful weaving workshops around NZ, Australia and the US. She recently ran a series of weaving workshops during the 2016/17 Woodford Folk Festival and was also invited to teach at the renowned Spirit Weavers Gathering in California in June.
