Director & Curator
Alicia grew up in St. Ives and its art tradition, where her parents ran the arts festival in the 70s and early 80s.
Following a career teaching Ancient Greek, Latin and Classical Art History, Alicia returned to Oxford University to undertake a PHD in History of Art, where she was awarded the Georgina Horlix Memorial Award and a Wolfson Foundation Reward.

She has three young children and still plans to finish her PHD one day.
