Artist + Mother - Alice Neel

Updated: Nov 1, 2020

"If you're sufficiently tenacious and interested, you can accomplish what you want to accomplish in this world." - Alice Neel


Wise words from artist and mother Alice Neel who spent nearly 40 years painting before she gained any recognition. She received notice for a small amount of time between the 1930's and 40's while she participated in the Public Works of Art Project in New York. Most of her time involved being a single mother and painter. She became publicly known in the 1970's for her portraits of feminists in bright color palettes. A true inspiration to women, mothers, and artists around the world. Find out More about Alice Here.
