Alicia Spilde

aliciadspilde (@) gmail.com
Alicia is an illustrator and mixed media artist who is driven to create to share ideas and feelings.  She is keen observer and a visual storyteller.
Stylistically, Alicia’s artwork is a blend of sweetness, whimsy, and spirituality.  She uses her artwork to convey the relationships she feels to the world around her, specifically to the outdoors, people, animals, and current events.  With her artwork, Alicia wants to lighten reality for the viewer and give them a sense of peace and wonder.
In her illustrations, Alicia is inspired by the way children observe and react to the world and how they experience things for the first time.  Alicia’s mixed-media artwork is spiritually inspired and she produces these pieces after listening to her favorite music or spending time in meditation. 

Alicia’s work is recognizable because of her use of vibrant color.  From bold blues and white mark-making in mixed-media artworks to hot pinks and neon greens in illustration, Alicia’s opinion on the use of color is “more is more!”
