Growing up in Taiwan, Alice Liou studied watercolor, Chinese brush painting and calligraphy under various art masters. She moved to Washington State over 30 years ago and devoted her time to education and career. In recent years, she rekindled her passion for painting and studied watercolor, soft pastel, sumi-e, and oil painting with local artists.
Always inspired by the beauty of nature, Alice enjoys creating images that express life’s energy in a variety of forms. Her study of Chinese brush painting and calligraphy also contributed to her unique style of art work.
In her art creation process, Alice strikes to express the essence of the subject while capturing the light and dark aspects in a balanced and harmonious way. Her watercolor and sumi paintings have been exhibited in group shows, Olympia Arts Walk, and at the Asia Pacific Cultural Center in Tacoma. Some of her paintings are posted on www.alicelioufineart.com.
