This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An award winning illustrator and professor in the School of Art and Design at San Jose State University, Alice Carter is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Art. She earned an MLA degree from Stanford University in a program that re-directed her from illustrating to writing.

As a professor, Carter was used to teaching classes, not taking them. But she had made up her mind that she wanted to begin writing about art and, as she says, "I didn't want to write like an amateur. I wanted to write like a pro."

The Stanford MLA Program offered her the perfect opportunity to explore a
wide variety of challenging courses while honing her writing skills. "The
breadth was tremendous; it really forced us out of our comfort zones," she
reflects. "If I had simply selected a program in art history, I don't think it would have been nearly as satisfying."

Her thesis -- a paper on the "Red Rose Girls," a group of talented women
artists who lived and worked together at the turn of the last century -- gave
her the chance to tell a fascinating but forgotten story she had long wanted
to write. "More than anything," she says, "I learned how to organize my
material and tell a story in a compelling way."

Today she is an accomplished author with several books to her name, including The Red Rose Girls: An Uncommon Story of Art and Love, which she developed into a book that was published this year by Abrams and has received high praise in the New York Times, the Atlantic Monthly, and other prestigious publications.
