Based in Ware, Hertfordshire - Alex is a severly visually impaired artist with an eye condition called Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) - a group of rare, genetic disorders that involve a breakdown and loss of cells in the retina, resulting in difficulty seeing in low light environments and a loss of peripheral vision. In addition, Alex also suffers from epilepsy.
Alex is always pushing herself to take on new challenges and develop her skills - which resulted in her achieving a Master’s degree in Fine Art from the University of Hertfordshire.
Alex's preferred mediums are:
Acrylics and Oils
Pens and Pencils
Textile & Crochet
Alex enjoys working on a variety of subjects as she continues to explore and develop her style but she enjoys featuring colour, movement, nature and animals in her works. Alex's visual impairement often results in her work featuring an interesting balance of detail and abstract, dreamlike qualities.
Alex is a registered artist with H'arts in Mind and is taking part in a trial residency with St Albans Museum + Gallery.
In her spare time, Alex is a fundraising volunteer for Guide Dogs UK and has previously assisted with childrens art sessions at Courtyard Arts, Hertford.
