Alice Doner Bio
Alice Doner, a former educator by profession, has been engaged in photography as an avocation for over 30 years. She first studied photography with Goeff Winningham and Peter Brown at Rice University and later, as part of American Civilization studies, at the University of Texas at Austin. Her work has been described as a "cross between landscape and still life."
After retiring to Asheville five years ago, she now has more time to devote to creating photo images, she says, "both from recently captured digital images and from the myriad of negatives, captured over the last several decades -- now being rediscovered and transformed by the almost unlimited possibilities afforded by the digital darkroom." In addition to exploring photo imagery, she loves to garden and is active in the local branch of AAUW (American Association of University Women) and its charitable arm, the GEM Fund. Alice lives in Weaverville with her husband Bob and their big shaggy golden retriever, Sophie.
