Thanks for checking out my website!
Hello! My name is Alexandra. I live in the Inner West of Sydney, Australia, with my partner and two children.
I am an expressive abstract artist, based in the inner western suburbs of Sydney. I paint intuitively with acrylics, often incorporating a variety of mixed media. My work is energetic and playful, using colour, texture and bold marks to add drama and movement.
In addition to being an artist and mum to two young children, my first love is performance.I am a professionally trained actor, having completed an Advanced Diploma in Acting for Screen and Stage. I have performed on stage, in Australia and Edinburgh, appearing in theatre, at fringe festivals and the odd TV commercial.
My performance training and experience continues to influence and energise my artistic practise.On the best painting days I am a city girl dreaming of far away places: majestic gorges, arid expanses of land and foliage you can get lost in.
Colour drives me. Every canvas is a new place to experiment with different colours and mixes. Along the way, forms and marks pose questions and I respond.
I am truly 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. And it's a wonderful feeling.
I have a little studio in my garden, where I can escape to paint, which is a dream come true! And productivity is at an all time high and I have completely and utterly run out of wall space! So if you see a painting you like and fancy putting it on your wall, please get in touch.
