About a Kurious Life and Alice Kay Lee
What is a kurious life?
A kurious life is the joy of knowing there are new things to learn, new people to meet, and new places to see. Alice offers workshops that teach people to use art, yoga, and meditation for stress-reduction and well-being. She mixes her passion for crystals with her creative talents to create energetically charged malas that have helped people cultivate better lives all over the country.
About the Artist
Alice began as an oil painter and found herself gravitating towards mixed media as she gained more experience. The textures that she achieves from torn paper, ink, glass, string, and paint have a quality that can be predicted but not entirely controlled. "I love the variability of mixing and matching different techniques: drawing, painting, bookbinding, printmaking, photography, collage, silkscreening, digital manipulation." The resulting works each reflect their own unique personality.
Alice was born and raised in San Francisco, California's Chinatown. Although the government housing projects were a little rough, Alice feels she owes much of who she is now to the rich culture she soaked in everyday. The murals, festivals, graffiti, and people of Chinatown taught her to see layers and textures as components upon which to build visual interest.
Alice moved to Seattle, WA in 2017 to pursue her studio practice and raise her family. She holds a degree in interior design, a credential in teaching, RYT-200 Yoga teacher certification, and is a primarily self taught artist.
