Alexandra Richardson is a British artist born in Cornwall but spent most of her teenage years in Virginia U.S.A. With an unusual ‘bohemian’ upbringing, Alex has been influenced by growing up on a magical fairy-tale estate (Trevarno) which shaped her creative imagination, traveling and living in Eco villages around Europe and spending her teenage years in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
Alex has been a natural artist since birth and continued her artistic education at Brighton City College, specialising in Illustration and photography. After falling in love with painting Alex has taken great pleasure in teaching herself new techniques over the past decade, often seeking out new projects such as tribute work. Whilst her main medium is acrylic painting, Alex also does furniture painting and restoration as well as other craft making. Alex takes inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci, Monet and M. C. Escher as well as many other world famous and classical artists.
‘I love hearing how my paintings make people feel, with clients saying my work makes them feel ‘calm’, ‘at ease’ and ‘peaceful’. I take great pride in knowing something so personal to me is appreciated and adored in others’ homes’.
