Behold: the work of Alice Teeple – photographer, visual artist, musician, performance artist and writer.
Born in rural Pennsylvania, Teeple’s childhood was filled with fairy tales and the wild unknown. Spending much of her early life at the historical museum her family operated also inspired her taste for time travel.
Often described as “unnaturally prolific,” her enormous reserve of creative energy has exploded in various channels for the past 20 years. After earning a BA in Integrative Arts from Penn State, she did time teaching beginning photo at her alma mater before striking out on her own.
Alice Teeple explores themes of the collective subconscious and spirituality in her conceptual work. Her themes are inspired by nature, British and Celtic mythologies, music, the occult, divination, silent cinema, Shakespeare, human history, and psychic visions.
Teeple’s work has been seen in:
- Rolling Stone
- Empirical Nonsense
- Louder Than War
- Downtown Magazine

Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry, Henry Rollins, Jim Jarmusch, Zola Jesus, Peter Murphy, Chrystabell, and President Barack Obama have all been subject to Teeple’s ‘nifty 50.” She reflects the revered and the downtrodden, the artists, the freaks, the dreamers, the creators, the noisemakers, and the rabble-rousers.
Alice Teeple is a self-taught photographer with a background in illustration, painting, writing, and filmmaking. She lives New York City, where she works as a freelance photographer and writer. She is a music journalist for Post-Punk.com, and is planning her first solo exhibit in NYC next year at Shelter Gallery.
