ALICE LATIMER MOSELEY Nationally Acclaimed Folk Artist Miss Alice, as she was referred to by friends and admirers, was a self-taught idyllic folk artist, who began painting at age 60 to maintain her sanity while caring for her Alzheimer-afflicted mother. Before that, she had only dabbled in china painting during her teens. “If my Mom had not been ill, I never would’ve painted,” Miss Alice once said. “I think of it as her gift to me.” Alice Latimer Moseley was born in Birmingham, Alabama on December 21, 1909, the oldest daughter of Earl and Mildred Latimer. After graduating Ensley High School, Miss Alice attended the University of Alabama until her father’s death in 1929.
