Alice Spittle

Alice finds it hard to define herself as a painter, weaver or mixed media artist but she would consider herself as a Maori contemporary artist, exploring life creatively through as many art forms as she can. Each art form inspires and compliments the others and they allow her to stay motivated and focused on her passion.

 

She studied Maori Design and Art at Te Wananga O Raukawa in Otaki, NZ (2002) and started her journey into the expression of art in Christchurch where she exhibited and sold her works nationally and internationally. Alice has created and developed her own solo exhibitions, workshops and events throughout NZ and Australia and has helped establish arts collectives and groups that she still actively participates in. 

 

She was recently invited to join the Woodford Folk Festival program and has also been invited to California in June to teach at The Spirit Weavers Gathering. 

 

Other recent exhibitions and events include:

 

Fish Hooks and Moving Trees Touring exhibition - Brisbane, Bundaberg, Mackay and Gladstone, Queensland

BEMAC Gallery, The Queensland Multicultural Centre, Brisbane

Gold and Green Stone Exhibition, Arts Centre, Gold Coast

Christchurch Art Gallery, New Zealand

Te Toi Mana Gallery, Arts Centre, Christchurch
