About Alice Vinson


Visual Communications, Book Arts, Mixed and Multimedia.

Personal Statement

I teach a number of courses in the Art Program: Digital Video, Graphic Design, Web Design, Digital Imaging, Illustration and the Visual Narrative, and Visual Communications Advanced Studio. Most courses explore the use of both traditional and digital methods in communicating visually, offering students the opportunity to create work that reflects their own personal style and interests.

My goal is to provide a environment where students not only feel comfortable asking for help, but they also feel safe to express and discuss their ideas with their peers. This provides students with opportunities to resolve creative issues with the assistance of others, as well as helps students to learn from each other.

My work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, and is housed in both public and private collections in the United States, United Kindom, Iraq and Japan.
