Alex was born and raised in Westchester, NY where a love of the arts was fostered by the community. She began her clay journey while as an undergraduate at Plattsburgh State where she earned her BFA, focusing on drawing, graphic design and ceramics.
Alex’s work is a meditation on memories and experiences, achieved through the medium and practice of clay as well as the illustrations she creates. Animal characters are used to explore narratives of self awareness, empathy and connection. Placing these narratives on functional wares encourages everyday use, meditation and conversation via routine. Each piece is meant as a catalyst for that exploration of connectedness through moments of quiet.
While out of the studio Alex is a full time graphic designer and a passionate plant collector.
Alex will be at Jane Herold’s Studio
