Prior to creating 'Alice Wotton Art' I studied Fine Art at A level where my passions began for painting and in return I achieved an A* grade. I then went on to attain a Distinction after studying a diploma in art foundation.
I have explored a whole range of mediums within art including, life drawing, photography, fashion and textiles, printing and ceramics. Whilst I find inspiration within all these subjects my heart always takes me back to painting.
I have spent great time exploring the masters in painting during my studies and I have exhibited my own work in a local gallery in which I have greatly enjoyed.
As an artist I find inspiration from a whole range of subjects including travelling, experiences, interior design and also emotions, so my practise often hints towards what I am currently feeling inspired by.
Currently my art is heavily influenced by my love of animals.
Living in the beautiful Suffolk countryside I love having nature outside my front door, My art is heavily inspired by what I find out in the countryside. From pheasants, muntjacs, badgers, cows and riding school ponies - all 80 of them roaming over the majority of the village land, I am constantly inspired to capture the countryside menagerie on to canvas.
My animal inspirations also derive across seas to South Africa, Pilanesberg National Park where I was fortunate enough to see beautiful exotic animals including Zebra, Lions, Giraffes, Elephants and Rhinos! My work will always try to pay homage to real life encounters with these beautiful creatures!
My art also involves painting the universal symbol of Love - the heart!
Pursuing my other passion of makeup artistry and working in the bridal sector, means some of my time is spent at beautiful wedding destinations, surrounded by Magical, happy, positive feelings and of course loads of love!
These emotions are the sole inspiration for my heart paintings. As a lover of abstract art being able to paint from emotion and feeling is a real passion and joy. I aim to capture these emotions through the use of colour, composition, media and texture inducing the consumer to feel the sentiment and emotion behind the piece of art.
Furthermore an exciting part of my artistic journey is working with you! I am equally as passionate about creating special commissions for you to enjoy forever, so if you have an idea, please do get in touch!
I am always striving to create authentic art that resonates with my passions and inspirations, so keep your eyes out for new styles of artwork!
