Alice White is a professional Oil Painter, and Associate Lecturer at Central St Martins College of Art and Design. She is a Guest Lecturer for Kings College London, Brunel University, The Courtauld Institute of Art and the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art. She is a newly Accredited Lecturer for The Arts Society (NADFAS).
Her essay 'A Painter's Perspective' appears in the book Alfred Cohen: An American Artist in Europe, due to be published by the Alfred Cohen Art Foundation and Ben Uri Gallery in March 2020.
Alice's solo show, entitled 'A New Wave' documented her year's residency as Artist for Animals at ZSL London Zoo. She continues to develop her portfolio, exploring the variety and richness of marine life living beneath the surface in the waters surrounding the UK. She was recently awarded the Russell and Chapple Canvas Prize for an Outstanding Artwork in Oils, at the Annual Exhibition for the Royal Society of Marine Artists in London.
She has been co-awarded the Public Engagement Fund at Brunel University 2019. Her project, entitled ‘Eat my Shorts’ is a collaboration between two scientists, a scientific film maker, and herself. It combines colourful, engaging stop-motion animation with public engagement and science communication practices to create short videos which will transform children into science communicators.
