Alice Loney Oestreich attended The Wheeler School in Providence, Rhode Island where she had the unique opportunity to major in Studio Art in High school. Started by Mary C. Wheeler, the schools founder, the Studio Art program is a 3-year intensive course which serves as a foundation in studio practices and art history. Mary C. Wheeler used to take her students to paint with her next-door neighbor in France, Claude Monet, following her lead the program continues to take students over to Europe to study. Alice worked for several summers during high school and college in Daniel Clayman's glass studio, where she learned the art of the lost wax method. At Skidmore College Alice majored in Fine Arts and minored in Art History while also working at the Tang Teaching Museum helping to document and create conditioning reports for rotating shows. Between her Sophomore and Junior year Alice had the opportunity to take part in the Mellon Scholarship at the RISD museum where she worked hands on researching to help put together a retrospective on Pat Steir. Her Junior year she took time off to travel to India where she travelled extensively focusing her trip on art and architecture. When she returned Alice was offered a job working at The Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, where she helped curate the private collection for the boutique hotel. Alice lived and worked in Los Angeles for a year, on numerous films, in various capacities, including as an assistant to a production designer on several commercials. Her film credits include Super 8 and X-Men: First Class, several independent features. Alice returned to finish her degree, at The University of Rhode Island. Her background is extensive in printmaking (with emphasis on Intaglio), drawing (with a preference towards ink), and painting. Abstract and mixed media, her current body of work is larger in scale than previously, striking a balance between a frenetic, combative line, with fluid, layered colors.
