Alexandra has been a student and peer teacher at the Visionary School of Arts since she was in Middle School. She discovered a love for portrait painting with acrylic and oil. She says, “Every time I went to paint, I was excited with the idea of continuing to work on something that had so much expression and that told a story.” She loves portrait painting because she can express emotions, can show every detail including imperfections to show the viewer that even some of the most beautiful and successful are not perfect, and because she can paint people of every ethnicity and race. “I am able to show the beauty in each and every race, ethnicity, gender, and religion.” Alexandra has donated paintings to be auctioned for charitable causes and has presented and competed in major exhibitions and competitions. She is a student at South Fork High School, and her goal is to become an art teacher.
