Art Bio

 Alicia has had an interest in the arts since her childhood, in the ‘Trash Room’ at the Chicago Children’s Museum is one of the earliest places Alicia was initiated into the practice of art making. Much of the diversity in Alicia’s present artwork is from influences as a child. Born to one African American, and one Jewish parent – exposure to the world, her themes of nature and the cosmos, and other influences can be traced directly back to a wealth of childhood experiences. By 17, she was already in tune with her creative intuition, erecting a magnitude of work stretching beyond kid-friendly debris of the Children’s Museum. She was a participant in Gallery 37 a Youth Arts program for over five years, and was involved in a number of arts and science programs for gifted students.  Alicia received her B.A. from Rutgers University for studies in both Anthropology and Fine Arts with a focus on painting. After graduating Alicia relocated to New York City to pursue a career as a professional artist. In her first year out of college Alicia started the business Designs by Alicia P which began with selling her own: hand-painted clothing & paintings but eventually grew to be an entire line of Jewelry designs each one hand made and based on her interests in anthropology, and with a roots in sculptural work.

Over the ten years that Alicia has run her own business, she has honed and perfected her unique style of art using suede leather, found objects, and other mixed media to create jewelry, wall hangings and now large format sculptures. Alicia has participated in a countless number of exhibitions including juried shows in New York and Chicago, as well as an invitational exhibition in London. In 2013 she was recognized by several arts funding organizations, and her work has been featured in major studio films, television programs, print, & digital media outlets.

Currently, Alicia is expanding her signature aesthetic now focusing on combining her creative modalities into one multi-sensory experience in the form of sculpture and installation work. In 2015, Alicia is excited to have been invited to travel to India to participate in the Art Castle International Art Residency. Alicia continues to exhibit her work regularly as well as designing custom work for private clients.

“NYC Fashionistas(os): for the first time probably ever you can see modern Bhutanese fashion and meet our friend/pioneering designer Chimmi at Real NYC Market this Sat & Sun. She’ll be sharing what she shares with us: ancient weaving patterns, auspicious symbolism, and the huge potential of modern Bhutanese fashion to create sustainable income for rural households across the country. Extra credit to the person who snags the raw silk scarf made with dyes from strawberries which I helped pick at 6 a.m. in a misty Himalayan forest. Or at least go say what’s up and give her gifts to bring back to me. We’re excited for her and it seems Real is as well judging by their FB page AdriAnne, Christine, Eva, Francesca, Caitlin, Evan, Fionna,Alexandra, Prudence, Beth, Matthew, Dana, Dana, Kristina, Michael, Kelly,Keating, Rodger, Chimmi, Alanna”  Thank you Vincent Roazzi, Jr

“Thank you to our team of hardworking weavers and staff for making a successful batch of natural dyed silk and wool yarn.”

Fashionista Tea + Tea Scarves = Connections

Thank you Brenda of Fashionista Tea for your Blog!  Tea Scarf and Fashionista Tea are awesome!   There are so many artists and makers who come to the Real NYC Designer Market and make friends/connections with their next door neighbor!  You never know who you will meet….  Keep your minds and hearts open and the right person will be dropped into your path!  We are inspired – REAL brings so much talent together and so many ideas all under one roof (and sky)!

Link to Blog – FASHIONISTA TEA

“Recently, FashionistaTea was an exhibitor at the Real NYC Designer Market in the Nolita neighborhood of New York City.  The Market features handmade décor, fashion, leather work, jewelry and all kinds of accessories. I had the opportunity to meet, Artist Reed Slater who was exhibiting beautiful scarves made from Tea.

Reed launched Tea Scarf in 2013 with the desire to create sustainably produced, eco-friendly, luxury scarves.  The scarves are printed on sustainably produced bamboo fabric and each pattern is created using teabags (how cool is this??) which have been steeped and printed on paper.  Each design and scarf is unique and the original prints on paper are photographed and the designs transferred to bamboo fiber, becoming wearable art.  Reed works in Brooklyn, New York and they are the stylish accessory to wear on a cool summer evening.  Check out his web site at:  www.teascarf.com  

How could I not love this, fashion that is eco-friendly and the perfect combination of Tea and fashion!

Here are a few of Reed’s scarves that were featured at the Designer Market (www.RealNYCmarket.com)”
