She started painting many years ago, but then stopped for a while until she joined a painting class at CPM (Casa Portugal em Macau) taught by Joaquim Franco. She started off doing figurative painting and then moved onto abstract painting.

Alice mostly uses raw material in her painting such as clay, sand and minerals, creating textures in most of her paintings.
