Alice Weil was born in San Francisco, California. When she was two years old, her family moved to the rural hills of Redwood City, California. She was exposed to art and inspired at a very early age by a close family artist friend and neighbor. “To this day the smell of turpentine, linseed oil and paint sweeps me back to that studio in the hills, filled with easels, paintings of the California landscape and a kind old painter.
Alice finds peace painting under the shade of mighty oaks as they grace the golden hills of the Stanford property and outlying areas. Her paintings reflect the power and strength of the Bay Area landscape, omitting the hand of man in most of her paintings. Inspired by the fog-laden hills and passionate about the feeling of the paint on canvas, Weil wants the viewer to be taken away to a quiet relaxed place in her paintings
Alice enrolled in art classes throughout high school and college and continues her art education, studying with artists she admires.
Her paintings are in private collections throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.
