“This year we had the opportunity to purchase 32 Character Half-Masks, and after much research and positive recommendations, our school hired artist Alice Nelson to create our set. After excellent communications and thoughtful discussions with Alice regarding our needs, she went to work to create our beautiful set. I am in complete awe of the artistry, the design, and the love in all 32 of our masks- all different, all unique, all vibrant with possibility. My students have been working with them, and it has been transformational for their confidence, body awareness, and character-building skills, but not only that, my kids have had SO MUCH FUN working with these masks. The students became quite attached to their “mask of choice”, working with the characters and finding out what the masks themselves could teach them. A delightful experience, bar none. Alice’s masks are beautiful, hand-crafted, and filled with magic. She carefully curated our set, with intricate detail, craftsmanship, and passion. I am beyond grateful for finding Alice’s masks and having them come home to us! Thank you, Alice- you are a wonder!”

“I am so impressed by the quality, feel, and individual painted characters. I’ve tried them all on – and they make acting easy. Years ago I had a latex set – but having a more rigid mask with a bit of flex is far better for stability and feeling like the mask is “on”. I will let the teachers in my corner of the country know about your work. So glad I found you!”
-Peter Wilson, Drama Teacher, Richmond School District, B.C.
