Alicia Piccolo was born in Westerly, RI in 1972 and currently resides in the Rhode Island. She has made art ever since she can remember. She never had to think about it or choose, it was something that she just did.
She graduated in 1994 from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Fine Art and earned The President’s Award for Student Excellence in Fine Art. Always intrigued by the unseen and inspired to connect with the unconscious, she is dedicated to creating a sense of equanimity and cultivating self compassion through her work.

With all of the textures and sublties some have said her paintings are remniscent of woven tapestries.
Alicia has also been a graphic designer for over twelve years and is currently the lead graphic designer at the Ocean House, a triple Five-Star resort hotel in Watch Hill, RI. Because of the tranquil nature of her work three of her paintings were chosen and currently adorn the walls of the Ocean House Spa.
