About the Artist

Untitled design (1).png

Alexandra creates oil paintings and mixed media drawings depicting figurative, imaginative realism art. She was first enchanted with imaginative realism upon discovering artists such as Annie Stegg, Howard Lyon, and Brad Kunkle after graduating college with a B.A. in Arts Management.

 

Her artwork has a strong focus on capturing lighting effects and luminosity in an attempt to give form to intangible feelings. The ephemeral nature of the scenes she crafts is meant to encourage the viewer to delve into their own hopes, goals, and dreams. 

 

Her oil painting technique involves first creating a tonal underpainting in raw umber, and then building thin layers of color on top.

Her mixed media pieces often utilize graphite, charcoal, inks and pan pastels along with many other experimental mediums.

Alexandra lives in New Jersey with her supportive husband and even more supportive two studio cats.
