Benitachell artist Alice Davies is a well known woman in this neck of the coast, if you can say that, as you will find Alice at many of the regional fairs and markets. Alice's impressionistic visions of beauty in watercolours are collected by local folks and tourists alike. How she became an artist is a fun story!

About 25 years ago, before the time that Alice was an artist, she was out walking on a mountain and started chatting with another hiker and discovered that he was an artist.

"I met a fellow hiker who turned out to be the famous watercolour artist Trevor Waugh from the Cotswolds in England." explains Alice. "I told him that I wanted to paint and he offered to come to Javea for a week to teach if I could find 6 people who would join the class."

Well, that was 25 years ago now and Alice has been painting and selling her paintings and making greeting cards from the paintings.

Even if you have met Alice before, come out to the ART MARKET on the 16th of March and meet her again :) xx
