Alice received her BA in History - with special interest in the Medieval Period.
She makes her quilts and quilted items from both new and vintage fabrics in her workshop, "The Hollow Tree", located in Norfolk, NY. She sews both by hand and by machine, beginning with simple geometric shapes that become more complex, depending upon color combinations and textures of the fabrics. Additional complexity is achieved with overlaying quilting stitch designs.
Alice does not describe herself strictly as a quilter, however. She prefers to define herself as an artisan who works with textiles - one who is able to transform loosely-related elements into a coherent, meaningful and aesthetic whole.
