All About Alice

Alice Tunnell received her B.Ed. from Univ. of Alberta and her M.Ed. from Univ of Calgary. She taught Kindergarten to Grade 5 for 29 years and worked with her students to give them exposure and experiences with creating pieces of art, ceramics, and using lots of different mediums and techniques. She continues to teach adult workshops using alcohol inks and acrylic. Their enthusiasm and paintings inspire her to continue working with people to offer her experiences with art and to impart to them what she has learned as an artist.

As she travels to warmer places in the winter and camping in the summer, she sees stunning scenery. Her inspiration comes from the water in oceans, lakes, and rivers and the beautiful landscapes. Capturing that beauty with her brushes and colourful paints is what makes being an artist so fulfilling to her. Her inspiration and ideas change with new experiences. Her knowledge and ability grow with networking and creating.

Alice is the President of the Okanagan Artists Coalition, a member of the Federation of Canadian Artist Okanagan Chapter, Lake Country Art Gallery, and Peachland Art Gallery. She has shown her work at Rotary Centre for the Arts, Bean Scene Coffee shops, BDO Accounting Firm, Discover Art in the Valley, FCA Fresh Off the Easel Exhibition, Opus Indoor Outdoor Online Challenge, Rotary Centre for the Arts- Artsco Exhibition, West Kelowna Art Exhibition, Blenz Coffee Shop, Volcanic Hills Estate Winery, Vibrant Vine Estate Winery, Kelowna Yacht Club Art Exhibition, Craft Culture Events, Peachland Farmers and Crafters Market, and various Christmas Markets.
