Alicia Farris has been painting professionally and teaching for 20+ years.  Alicia loves to share her knowledge and passion and gains incredible inspiration when she teaches her workshops.  
The personalities and flavors of people that she encounters in day-to-day life definitely inspire her work.  Even if it’s for trying to just capture a mood, she usually has one hand on her camera when she’s in a crowd.  She tries to recreate not just an image, but mood, light, and colors that capture her imagination.   Alicia likes to isolate what seems common and try to recreate it in a different light, all the while, providing a source of emotion for the viewer. 
 Her work has won numerous awards and has been exhibited in galleries and private collections throughout the world.  
Some of the artists who have greatly inspired me are Fealing Lin, Don Andrews, George Kauntoupis, Marilynne Bradley, Sandy Baker, and Bertha Alicia Neales,  just to name a few.  With art, I feel that I’m on a continual and wondrous journey with so many in the present, as well as with artistic geniuses of the past.   Life inspires me to create and  I expect that will continue as long as my heart does.
