Alex creates house portraits or transforms sentimental locations into timeless pieces of art using her unique mixed media approach. Within a certain distance (from Leicestershire) Alex will visit the site to sketch, take photographs and gain a real feel for the location and the atmosphere. The art is then created in the studio building on layers of different materials and medium until the final embroidery embellishment is added. If it is not possible to visit a location Alex is also happy to work from your own photographs. Prices start from £150 please contact Alex for further details.
