At home where my family is. Detail oriented on beauty and the thrilling art of creation; found in the moments that leave me breathless and in awe. 

Alicia is a walking contradiction. Left brained by formal education, yet creative to the bone by nature. Inspired by classic music but jams to too many sub genres of rap. Loves a ballgown, but needs tennis shoes or Birks. It's these every day contradictions that keeps the every day fun and her art interesting and exciting.
