Alicia Scobie is a multi-disciplinary contemporary artist whose current creative interests lie within the areas of mark making, experimentation and creation through a feminist lens. She demonstrates a continual attempt to push her studio practice and is a great encourager of contemporary and critical discourse within the arts arena.
Alicia graduated in 2003 from Southern Cross University with a Batchelor of Contemporary Visual Art specialising in Printmaking, Photography and Art theory.
From 2007 up until 2020 Alicia lived and worked in the Northern Territory. Here she helped facilitate print projects within Indigenous communities, managed Art Galleries and was the chairperson of Darwin Visual Arts Association, a leading not for profit Territory arts organisation. Alongside all of this, Alicia continued her own creative practice where she received several grants and was awarded various residencies. Of note, in 2019 Scobie was the recipient of the $30,000 Northern Territory Creative in residence at the Library and Archives of the Northern Territory where she wrote, recorded, and released a 5 song EP alongside an artist’s book about Tennant Creek.
Now a Mansfield resident, Alicia has set up her own space; ArtBuoy Studio, where she spends her time creating. Alicia intents to run art classes through her studio that help others be creative and find the joy, colour and connection that it brings.
