Alice Newton Back

Drawing and making things have always been a large part of my life.
I grew up in the USA, but came to England when I was nineteen to study art, and have lived here ever since.

After graduating from Art College I did mainly graphic design work until my children came along. While raising them, I worked in various mediums until 2001, when I decided to concentrate on painting.

My inspiration comes from the various settings and situations I have encountered. The paintings are usually done in acrylics or mixed media, and are often in a narrative style.

I moved to Cornwall in 2007 and am currently living and working in Penzance.
