Alessandra - or Alex, as she is known, reflects on life's questions, the ‘assumes’ and the discovery of the Self. The work deals with the acceptance of our humanity, the letting go of broken dreams and illusions. It looks at the way life invites us to reach a space of equanimity, wisdom and generosity. This is the inner journey that is the universal journey of all humanity.


Alessandra paints ethereal images. Images based on poems, wisdom and personal history. It is rare that an artist so accurately portrays the personal identity that is encompassed in the soul of humanity as a whole.


She is greatly influenced in her work by the different cultures she experienced while growing up, from a Catholic Convent in Sardinia to the vast open spaces of Africa to the mysterious Far East. She draws inspiration from the profound strength and beauty of the people she encounters, creating a powerful synergy.


Her paintings are intensely atmospheric and rich in expressive moods. The work deals with transformation on a personal, cultural and universal level and is characterized by the simplicity of striking visual image. The paintings are oil on canvas done in large format using clear, bold colours.


Alex is available for commission-work and is happy to work from photographs.
