Alice Wolf: Edmond Inspired
Alice Wolf is a Japanese American whose family chose to call Edmond home. Alice graduated from Edmond Public Schools and studied Graphic Design at The University of Central Oklahoma completing a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts & Design. She currently works at Oklahoma City University full-time as an in-house graphic designer and studies Studio Art to continue her education.
Paying Homage to Home
As a child on a family vacation, Alice could be found browsing gift shops with a meticulous eye. She was enamored by the National Park series featured on magnets, spoons, posters, and other souvenirs. She collected these pieces to keep the memories with her while at home. These trinkets inspired her to create a series that paid homage to the places she explores in her own hometown. “I want people to know that Oklahoma isn’t just a place to pass by, it’s a boomtown. There is so much to see and experience,” she says.
Alice’s art is inspired by childhood travels with a nod to vintage styles like Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and WPA Style, and while her pieces are easily identifiable, they offer a bit of whimsy to reality. Alice has created art to pay tribute to Oklahoma City with pieces inspired by Midtown, Paseo, Uptown, Wheeler District, The Boathouse District, and Asian District, as well as the Gold Dome, Streetcar, Myriad Botanical Gardens, The National Memorial, and other OKC icons. Bringing it home, Alice has created a piece featuring Downtown Edmond, Pop’s, Shannon Miller Park, the Centennial Clock, and the University of Central Oklahoma with more on the way.
Alice’s creativity invites curiosity and sparks adventure. Her art can be found on water bottles, bags, bike jerseys, and calendars, and are perfect for a framed series display. Alice is also a Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga instructor and avid traveler while splitting her time between central Oklahoma and Miami Florida with family. Her art and inspiration can be found on Instagram at @doodlesbyayogi. She will display and sell her art at VIBES, Edmond’s first Thursday art walk in Downtown Edmond.
