A move to Lake Arrowhead, CA inspired Alicia to paint in a surreal style using themes from the lake. These paintings depict fish and other items floating in the air, these themes are from reoccurring dreams the artist has had since childhood paired with the influence of her husband’s love of fly fishing. Alicia paints from her home sudio and currently resides in Biloxi, Mississippi.
