Her painting style displays her love of life on large scales of canvas adorned with bold, vibrant colors. Alicia is influencing the art world as much as the boxing world, and currently has her work featured in gallery212 in Wynwood, Miami, where it is attracting crowds from Miami’s most popular art walks and art Basel.
