Alice Welchman

London born artist, Alice Welchman, spent much of her early life in Chelsea and then Essex before leaving home for boarding school at 11. It was during these years at school she discovered an affinity for painting and was introduced to art as a means of exorcising her inner demons and learning to rationalise emotions she otherwise struggled to express. Welchman went on to study Fine Art at Margaret Street in Birmingham. After graduating she stayed in Birmingham and continued to independently sell her work as she further experimented with painting techniques and mediums, colour symbolism, and refining her approach to creating more detailed works in pencil and charcoal.
