Alicia Lockwood

Alicia is from the opposite end of the world – Melbourne, the Southern tip of mainland Australia and somehow found herself fascinated by the Northern tips of the world. She has been traveling for four years around Europe and Africa, finding herself living for the past 2 years in Northern Norway in Tromsø.

Always intrigued to visit Svalbard, she took a four day vacation to see the sights last year and found herself quitting all of her four jobs, giving up her life commitments and moving to Svalbard for a summer season at Isfjord Radio on a whim ten days later.

She is passionate about painting and photography, inspired by the dark and light periods, arctic animals, solitude, stark landscapes and the combinations of the mountains and the sea.
