About

Predominantly a landscape painter, Alice Boggis-Rolfe takes her paints wherever she goes. Her subject matter stretches from the English countryside to as far afield as Burma and Zambia.  Undeterred by storms or downpours, which Alice would argue make the most exciting paintings, she works very fast and on site, usually completing her paintings within a couple of hours.  She uses thinned  oil paint on gesso panels which dries quickly allowing her to build up layers of colour in tight weather-restricted time frames.

Alice lives and works in London. Since finishing art school she has exhibited widely in group shows including the New English Art Club, The Royal Society of Portrait Painters, The Royal Institue of Oil painters and The Chelsea Arts Club. She had a very successful first solo show at The Coningsby Gallery, London in 2015. In 2016 she was awarded the Wedlake Bell award for a Young Artist and the Winsor and Newton First Prize for a Young Artist.

In early 2017 Alice is packing up her paints and heading off around the world in search of new subject matter. Her adventures will take her to Morocco, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Peru, Cuba and Kenya before returning to London for her solo exhibition in November.
