Alice was raised in a household of artists. Both parents were graduates of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her mother, June Decker, was a painter and her father, Ferdinand Rebechini,  a sculptor. The house had a large studio where her father and grandfather, who was also a sculptor, worked daily. Her mother painted in the same studio.  From a young age Alice's daily recreation was drawing. During vacation trips to the American West, she was introduced to watercolor and gouache work guided by her mother.  Alice went on to study watercolor, instructed by Peter Bodnar, while an architecture student at the University of Illinois,  and gained a lifelong interest in this challenging medium. In recent years, Alice participated in studios with John Herron, Sarah Kaiser, Nacy Behles and Mike Kolasinski and pursued expanded techniques, expressions, and subjects. Currently, she enjoys painting fully abstract works,  as well as continuing with traditional landscapes.  Throughout her studies and career Alice has enjoyed life drawing in various mediums, including charcoal and pastels.
