Alice Mumford was born in 1965 in Columbia. She studied at Falmouth College of Art and Camberwell School of Art, and now teaches life drawing and painting at St Ives School of Painting.

‘My challenge is trying to keep colour while looking into the light. It happens when you set up a still life and there is another light source, say from another window. The answer is to make coloured shadows, but you still have to balance the tones so that things look as if they are against the light. Hopefully you can do this and create a sense of distance’.

A recent exhibition at Belgrave St Ives, coincided with the book launch of Colour from Coast to Coast.

Alice Mumford is represented by the Belgrave Gallery, St Ives.
