"Horses are one of my favorite subjects. Although afraid of them in real life, I love to paint them… their movement, their muscles, their line. And especially the color of the jockeys’ outfits: bold orange with lime green, red with blue stripes, dark green and white… I revel in the colors." - Alice Williams
There is no mistaking an Alice Williams painting. Post-impressionist in style for over 40 years, she makes it look easy, but that perfectly unfinished, relaxed precision is the result of a lifelong love affair with the arts and dedicated study with many of the great American artists of our time.
She studied Fine Arts at Columbia College, Furman University, and Clemson University in South Carolina, then went on to study under Al Green, John Howard Kintsler, and Albert Handel, to name a few. It was in Atlanta that she found the great Russian painters (and brothers), Constantine and Roman Chatov, who quickly became her most influential teachers.
