Alexandra’s linocuts capture the changing season and the play of light and shadow upon the countryside. Alexandra'’s work ranges from clean and graphic, to impressionistic and painterly, and always has a strong focus on colour. It is the challenge of distilling a scene so full of the many and various shapes and colours of nature into just a few that keep Alexandra enthralled by this artist's medium.
After completing a degree in “Design: Crafts” at Staffordshire University in 2004 Alexandra started her career designing and making silver jewellery from her home in Buckingham. Keen to further other artistic skills, she attended several local art courses including a reduction lino printing workshop. Immediately captivated by this complex relief printing technique, Alexandra focussed on and continued to improve her linocuts and was rewarded by having her work selected for the 2011 and 2012 Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
After moving to Bicester in 2012, regular woodland and scenic walks with her new dog provided a fresh source of inspiration for her printmaking.
