Meet the Artist – Alice Tunnell

Alice Tunnell

Alice Tunnell is an Okanagan artist in British Columbia. She received her BEd from Univ. of Alberta and her MEd from Univ of Calgary. Alice taught Kindergarten to Grade 5 and worked with her students to give them exposure and experiences with creating pieces of art, ceramics, and using lots of different mediums. 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.

During a winter holiday in Antigua in 2015 – 2016, Alice participated in a 10 week workshop with a professional artist from the UK. The techniques, mediums, and projects inspired her to pursue using alcohol inks, acrylic, and other mediums to improve and enhance her art.

As Alice 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. Alice’s inspiration and ideas change with new experiences. Her knowledge and ability grow with networking and creating. Each piece she , creates is a connection of where she has come from and what she has learned, as well as where she is going as an artist.
