Alise Hardy is an artist and arts educator from Adelaide. As an emerging artist, Alise has already had success as the winner of The City Rural Emerging Artist Award and as a finalist in The Advertiser Contemporary Art Award and the Adelaide Review Outsider Art Award, in SALA Festival 2015. In 2016, Alise established Through Art in order to bring visual arts experiences to young people.
Alise's work is mostly about herself. She creates to explore and extend her learning about how she functions within the world. She also wants to challenge those who view her work and for them to experience parts of the often confronting journey that she took in creating it.
After teaching in London as a Special Educational Needs teacher in 2013 and 2014, Alise moved back to Adelaide and qualified as a teacher with a Bachelor of Education (middle and secondary schooling) and Bachelor of Arts (with a focus on Visual Arts and English).
