Alexandra is a Sydney based artist working from her home studio in Lewisham. Her energetic and intuitive works use colour, texture and bold marks to evoke the drama and movement of a diverse Australian landscape.
After falling in love with the world of theatre, Alexandra studied Theatre and Costume Design, completing a Bachelor of Arts at Charles Sturt University. She went on to complete her acting training as a performer in Sydney, with an Advanced Diploma in Acting.
However, it wasn't until after having children that Alexandra began to seriously explore painting. “I was desperate to create again and when you're housebound with young children, your options are limited. Painting was perfect. It was electric. I was addicted within a weeks,” explains Alexandra.
In addition to being an artist, Alexandra is also a professionally trained actor. “My performance training and experience continues to influence and energise my artistic practise. I am addicted to the irreverent process of creating a painting. Much like rehearsing a play or improvising on stage, painting requires me to be in the moment.”
