The majority of my artwork focuses on nature and wildlife, and often highlights species at risk. My work uses leaves as a medium to highlight the natural alternatives available and the need to limit consumption and waste due to the negative impacts these have on the environment. The overarching message is that every person does in fact have an impact on the environment with every action. The pieces exhibited here include the Golden Eagle, a species currently at risk in Ontario, an autumn landscape, the Spirit Bear, an iconic image of the western wild and a Barn Owl grassland piece that highlights disappearing grasslands of Southern Ontario. Each of these pieces is created with low impact natural materials or repurposed, such as the wood frame.
Alexandra is a Sudbury native inspired by the simplistic beauty of nature and wildlife. Alexandra hopes that this type of artwork may inspire others to reduce waste in their every day lives. It is hoped that this art may also aid to raise further awareness for nature and wildlife conservation. Each leaf is carefully collected in Ontario in the fall, dried and then hand-painted with one of a kind art. Alexandra hopes to make a positive impact on the environment and is currently studying Forest Health at Lakehead University.
