ARTIST STATEMENT

Alexis implements different techniques to achieve textures that people want to touch and uses bold colors to catch the eye. Though she doesn’t consider herself to be a “fiber artist”, textiles play an important role as part of her medium. The specific type of fabric frequently determines both the techniques employed and often the content as well. Her paintings can be quite dark or sardonic, usually inspired by thoughts and fears that are not typically shared with others.
