Alice signs her works with her maiden name to differ them from her sister-in-law's (Irina Provada) dolls. Those two women artists living conditions are mostly similar. They both are members of the one family, their houses stay in the neighborhood and Alice also has three children. But her works looks far different from Irina's. They have another technique and subjects. The artist use quotations from old painters art, her dolls are mysterious but narrative. Persons presented on her dolls have an expressive silhouette good for perception, they are skilled in colors and tone. The author takes her lovely topics from the literature. Alice works are also not numerous, and every is certainly one-of-a kind.
