    Great drawings with lovely fresh colours, and a wonderful use of decorative graphic textures.

    Always a pleasure to see Alice’s work, thank you. I used to be able to buy cards of her prints in our next door neighbour’s Art Cafe but now that the business has changed hands they no longer sell any works of art, I am bereft.

    I am a big fan of Alice’s work. When I first learned of these alphabet screen prints, I couldn’t imagine being able to pick…….and then the whole BOOK was published!? Genius.
    Look how she juggles so many abilities……..typography, illustration, graphic design, and spot-on
    color choices. All done with humor and fondness for her topic/s.
    Brava, Alice. Thank you, GA.

    Stay safe, all.
