Alicia died peacefully Monday at her rural Saskatoon home while her family kept vigil.

She was diagnosed with multiple myeloma five years ago but continued to teach and paint until shortly before her death.

After obtaining her MFA from the U of S Alicia became a prominent member of the province's art community, mounting numerous exhibitions of her paintings, imparting her talents to her students and designing with her sculptor husband Leslie Potter installations familiar around Saskatoon. Just 10 days earlier she and Leslie introduced their most recent collaboration, the Dapplers, two playful steel and concrete abstract animals, at Station 20 West.

Alicia's interests were not confined to the visual arts: she loved all forms of music and took an abiding interest in nature. Her intellectual curiosity compelled prodigious reading. She also had a special affection for her nieces and nephews.

She leaves her husband, daughter Danielle (Vince) and brother Wilfred (Alexandra).

A commemoration of her life will take place at her residence on Sunday of the May long weekend.

Donations in Alicia's honour may be made to the Visual Artist Distress Fund of CARFAC SASK
