Alicia De Lima-Caribbean Artist-Biography


ALICIA DE LIMA - Biography


Born on the island of Trinidad, West Indies.  At present  lives in Venezuela.

Alicia has always had a deep interest in the visual arts and classical music.  For G.C.E. England,  art and music were her main subjects.  In UWI Trinidad,  she attended Extra Mural courses in ceramics and batik.   Her tendency is abstract and towards experimental and expressions of squish, squash, squeeze and squirt also touches of Mixed Media.  She goes beyond normal methods with watercolour, mainly painting without a brush, exploring into the mysteries and significance of colour waves.

Alicia has no formal Art Education except for private lessons, brief courses as stated below. She is 75% self taught with watercolour. She feels a freedom and a deep connection with water and pure colour that are not easily explained.

She has been invited to give workshops  of her original technique in New Mexico Art League, October 2010, see The Artist’s Magazine, march 2010. Her workshops are called: Squish, Squash, Squeeze and Squirt  and Beyond Myth and Tradition with watercolours.
