Studio Sessions with Marie Alexander

Q: Describe your art in three words.

A: Feminine, minimal, and healing.

Q: Where do you draw inspiration?

A: I draw inspiration from everywhere, even the minute and mundane. I find nature, feminine shapes, and interior design very inspiring.

Q: What is your favourite medium and why?

A: Acrylics and gouache are my favourites due to their versatility and ease of use.

Q: Who are some of your favourite artists?

A: My list of favourite artists is pretty lengthy but Frida Kahlo, Kara Walker, and Henri Matisse are at the top!

Q: Do you have a day job? If so, what is it and does it influence your creative process in any way?

A: I no longer work a day job. I’m a disabled US Air Force veteran. Most days my chronic physical and mental health issues keep me from functioning at a “normal” level. I paint on the days/times of day that I am feeling well enough to do so.
