Alice Asmar

Raised in Portland, Oregon, Alice Asmar was considered a child prodigy, winning awards and recognition for her artwork before the age of 10. A top student of art both in Portland and at Seattle's University of Washington, Asmar briefly held a job at Boeing Aircraft, clearing top-secret drawings of military aircraft. Soon however, her deeply ingrained love of nature and visual art drove her back to Portland, this time as a teacher at Lewis and Clark University.

Eventually, Asmar set out on her world travels, encountering exotic cultures and their imagery. Combining her inspiration from nature with a deep respect for native American culture, her work has evolved into Southwestern themes of Indian Ceremonial Dance Dramas, Indian portraits, and landscapes. A master of many media, Alice is distinguished for her many techniques, which include paintings in oil, casein, and acrylic, drawing in ink, pencil and pastel, collage, tapestry, books, lithography, etching, engraving on metal on plexiglas, portraits, murals, and banners. Her hand engraving of innovative designs for dinner and household wares for Nambe Mills in Santa Fe is recognized internationally. Today, Asmar still creates masterpieces in her Burbank, CA studio.
