Alivia’s practice revolves predominantly around the nude female form. The physicality of the female  gure and the aesthetic formal elements of historical images, are the predominant conceptual motifs in Alivia’s practice.
Alivia’s work aims to convey a harmonious tension between soft and romantic themes and an unopologetic honesty and directness. Alivia’s idiosyncratic and contemporary depictions of the women
in her life aim to explore and idolise (not idealise) the female
form, from a female perspective.
