That is my Art"

Alexia is a contemporary, self-taught abstract and mixed media painter. Her signature works display joyous, vibrant colors created with specific alcohol inks. Alexia is deeply inspired by patterns found in nature and she works hard to create her own earthy and imperfect, 'wabi-sabi' textures in her pieces of art. She builds the textures with molding pastes and gels and covers them with vibrant colors. Many of Alexia's paintings are infused with local wines to create interesting separations and reactions with the inks and fluid acrylics that she uses. Her process of 'wabi-sabi' is a layer-by-layer adding and stripping away technique that involves a great deal of patience and even experimentations.
"quite literally--anything inside my Studio is fair game to use, to create an interesting painting and deeply original piece of Art- that is how I began working with wine-"
Alexia now lives in San Diego, California, and is a Resident Artist in The ARTS DISTRICT at Liberty Station. Alexia has exhibited her works in galleries and solo shows across the United States
