Biography: 
Born in Buffalo, New York, acheiving a BA degree in 1964 from the State University of New York at Buffalo, Mrs. Nolley started to visit the island of St. Lucia frequently when her father retired to his parents birth place over 20 years ago. She and her husband, retired Marine Corps. Major, stayed for more and more lengthy vacations in St. Lucia, which led to a permanent home and artist's studio there. Alcina is very active art advocate and teacher in St. Lucia. She taught secondary school art and was a founding member of the St. Lucia Arts & Crafts Cooperative. She served sixteen years with the Minville & Chastenet Fine Arts Council and three on the board of the Cultural Developement Foundation. She is now a member of the fledgling Cultural Developement Network, which is striving to bolster the local art & craft sector by developing skills, markets and quality products.
Alcina teaches painting and jewelry classes in her home studio, The Court Yard Art Studio and sells her work from Inner Gallery and various local gift shops.
Artist Philosophy: 
I'm supposed to be retired, but making jewelry is too much fun. Working with fine silver, gold and gemstones can't be beat. Teaching what I know and watching my students faces light up when they have accomplished making their own treasure, with their own hands is a joy. This treasure could be a painting or piece of jewelry. St. Lucia is so beautiful, it inspires the themes and subject matter in my jewelry and paintings.
Awards: 
B.A. 1964 State of Un. of NY at Buflo. Art Studies / Art Education
1983 Permanent teaching Credential for California
