Hey hey! I'm Alice and welcome to my Wonderland!


You know when Jessica Hische once said:

The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life.

I totally agree! I am happier when I'm creating! That's why I'm trying to do the thing I love the most: to Letter! And I hope you feel inspired here!


You can find my little Lettering planet at Olhar de Alice.
