designer loves art...Alexa Meade...165

normally you paint a portrait of a person, but you don't paint a person for your portrait

this is Alexa Meade

living in Washington, although she doesn't have what one would call a "formal" training, she certainly has the eye of one. she has a wonderful play with light and shadows in her work.  while stepping out of the box and painting her subjects so they look like a painting, she shows her understand of color and light. not unlike impressionism. at the moment she has been receiving a lot of positive critics of her work, and is being showed cased around the world.

some artist create a piece of art that later on defines them
