Alex Louisa graduated with a degree in Journalism and Creative Writing, before the need to create firmly pulled her attention back to her art. Having worked as a graphic artist for eight years, she now focuses solely on her personal work.
In 2008 she had her first solo exhibition at Jugglers Art Space in Brisbane, and has been involved in a number of group shows throughout Australia since then. Her work is now reaching an international audience as a member of the PRISMA Collective, showing with a selection of 30 artists from around the world. Her work has been published in Curvy and Semi-Permanent.
Often experimenting with mixed media, especially in the backgrounds of her works, Alex mainly works with drawing materials or oils, currently with a shift towards larger works. She focuses on elements of the natural world that grab her attention - discovering the intricacies of a leaf or flower, or trying to capture an animal's individual personality, especially those of the avian kind.
Alex grabs every moment she can to work on her artwork, throwing herself into her painting or drawing any moment that her twin baby boys are asleep.
