Growing up in and around Madrid, New Mexico and going to Santa Fe School for the Arts & Sciences, a school where all art forms are encouraged, Alicia has developed a deep love for art. Since the age of two, she’s enjoyed making artwork inspired by her dreams and vivid imagination, and has always had the dream to one day become an artist, and to be an inspiration for young people and encourage them to follow their dreams.
Now, at age thirteen, Alicia has won numerous art-related honors and awards, including having her art featured on the back of the Santa Fe City bus and winning 1st place in the state of New Mexico in the Lion’s Club International Peace Poster Contest, as well as winning several other contests and awards.
She has developed a unique art style inspired by dreams she’s had, messages she wishes to share with the world, and stories she wishes to tell. In many of her paintings she includes a glowing heart, but in each painting that heart represents something different. Alicia has many influences, including Mark Ryden, Michael Hussar, Greg Simkins, Daniel Merriam and many more. She is inspired by them to continue telling stories through her artwork and follow her dream.
