Alicia Dunn
Encinitas, California

All the elements that could affect a painting - the weather, her mood, or reactions of materials - intrigue Alicia Dunn. “Ceding control to these things allows the magic to happen,” she explains. Her paintings strive to capture the unique energy of nature, particularly derived from the beach. Staring into the mesmerizing colors of her work, the glacial turquoise and luminous orange, the viewer can see the shape of the waves, the swiftness of the wind, and the beginning of a day. Living in San Diego, CA, Alicia enjoys expansive views from her second story studio, with the mountains to the east and the ocean to the west. She calls her studio her “treehouse.” Alicia’s love for the simple things in life, her awe of nature’s perfection, and her sense of discovery, come across in her work. Every piece is rich in color and texture, making it appear fresh and alive, but also weathered and eroded through the process of its creation. Like nature itself, each painting shifts with the viewer, chronicling time through movement and beauty.

Love the art. It goes well when I have it hanging and it ties in with a book that I am writing. Can you contact me regarding permission to use the work in my book? Thanks so much. Allan

I just received your painting Vintage / Modern and absolutely love it! The color, texture and finish are all beautiful and I especially like the wooden box it's painted on...the wood and its dimensional feel led me to purchase your work. Thank you so much!
