About the Artist and Work
Based in Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Wales, UK.
Alex has a 1st class honours Fine Art degree.
She is a qualified ski instructor, and loves to travel and explore.
Alex has a passion for wildlife and animals, and has two springer spaniels Oli and Mouse.
Alex's artwork is inspired and created from my travels and wildlife. Within each painting my aim is to make the viewer see more than just paint on canvas. I want them to be able to see life and movement.
Please contact us for commissions and paintings.
Alex is passionate about Animal welfare and the environment . "Producing paintings around this subject is my ongoing aim, with the hope to raise awareness".
Some of these paintings are inspired by her travels to South Africa. She stayed and worked in Kynsna elephant park situated along the Garden route. The elephants depicted in the paintings are the most amazing creatures. She spent everyday with them for three weeks, got to see their way of life and how they understand the world. There are seven elephants (Sally's herd) and Alex was able to develop relationships with them as individuals and as a group, which she feels comes across in her paintings. Alex was volunteering with a research organisation called AERU.
Devon's coast, one of Alex's favourite places, having had many memorable holidays and in turn many amazing photos. These photos and memories have inspired many paintings . Her aim within these pieces is to imply movement, whether it's the sea, mud, boats or even just to make it feel a bit more alive. "I feel I capture this element and each work provides an experience".
Having lived in Jasper, Canada for 6 months, Alex became very familiar with its mountains. Whilst there, she saw countless sunrises and they have inspired her work. "I must say Canada is the best place for a dramatic sky, especially in the Rockies". Ever since being exposed to this her use of colour has become more confident and bold.
