Alice Bolingbroke Woodward was born in London as the fourth of seven children of scientist and Keeper of Geology at the Natural History Museum Henry Bolingbroke Woodward (1832-1901).
Being taught at home by governesses, the children were encouraged in their scientific and artistic pursuits, with the girls in the family becoming artists and the boys becoming scientists.
Alice created illustrations for her father's lectures and papers of his scientific associates in her late teenage years already, earning sufficient money to continue studying at the South Kensington School (Royal College of Art). She continued at the Westminster Art School, and then at the Académie Julian in Paris, France.
