ALICE STRAKER

Alice began painting food.  Shw grew up in a family of great chefs.  Both her mother and twin brother filled the table with wonderful creations, which fed her hunger to paint.  After studing Art at school, she read History of Art at University where she learnt about atists that inspire her work today;  David Hockney, Claes Oldenburg and Grayson Perry to name a few.

Her early paintings are in watercolour, which helped with the fine details of her subjects.  As she moved to larger compositions she turned to acrylics and found this enabled her to capture the delicious textures of food, which has given her work an edible quality.

Alice has been in several exhibitions in London as an artist and curator and has exhibited her work in a number of ways.  In 2014 and 2015 she was part of 'Office Sessions', a series of exhibitions curated by Caitlin Mavroleon, where she showed watercolour food paintings and 3D installations of Viennetta, Custard and Merinue.
