Alyce Bailey Painter
You would be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful place to live and work.
I think Tasmania is an incredible place for an emerging artist. There are many varied opportunities to show your work, and a wonderful network of artists to connect with.
Fresh out of high school at the age of 19, I was named Handmark’s 2013 Emerging Artist. After four successful solo shows, I have now begun my Bachelor of Fine Arts at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
Initially, I set out to create self-portraits. Over time, however, I found myself wanting to create works that tell stories – my own, and those of my family. It isn’t my intention to create works that have an immediate impact. Rather, to create emotions that linger on with the viewer, long after they have walked away.download cv
