Alice Aycock was born November 20, 1946, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, United States. She is a daughter of Jesse N. Aycock, a construction engineer, and Alyce F. Haskins.
She revealed her interest in the world of art at the young age. Firstly, inspired by the fascinating stories of her grandmother the little Alice dreamt to become a writer. Then, she changed the media of a dream by choosing the visual arts.
Alice Aycock was always encouraged by the parents in her intention to become an artist. She often observed how her father produced scale models of houses. One of the debut Aycock’s land-art pieces called Low Building with Dirt Roof (for Mary) was created with the help of the artist’s mother.
