My name is Alice Trow and I'm an art maker and nature lover based in Victoria, Australia. I graduated from the Queensland College of Art with a Bachelor of Fine Art in 2017.
To put it simply, my art practice stems from my love for the natural world - I'm such a 'look at the moon! look at the clouds! look at those trees!' type of person and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Currently, my practice is centered around capturing the effects of changing light on a landscape; depicting the 'magic hour' that comes with sunrises and sunsets. I'm fortunate enough to live near some of the most incredible coastlines Victoria has to offer and am finding endless inspiration in the ever changing nature of these landscapes.
My paintings are done on an intimate scale and, rather than demanding attention, my work quietly encourages the viewer to lean in and engage with the scene before them.
Through combining my love for nature and delicate, handmade things, my paintings culminate in dreamy, one-of-a-kind pieces; offering a glimpse into another time and place and–ultimately–a brief moment of reflection from our busy, fast paced lives.
When I'm not making art you can find me thinking about making art (seriously), drinking copious amounts of tea, reading, trying to keep far too many plants alive, getting out into nature, or hanging out with my cat, Max.
