Alice says.."The COLORBLAST series was born out a love for bright colors and simple yet enigmatic illustrations. For the last year I have been moving away from larger mixed media pieces and delving into the feeling of watery paint with a strong color sense.
The ideas for each piece often come to me in a dream like state. I see something small, often human-made, and I use this ordinary object as a point of inspiration. I then pair it with an obviously beautiful natural object like a flower or colorful insect. In contrast it can also be a piece of the natural world that grabs my attention and I begin drawing it—trying to capture it’s likeness."
