ABOUT ALEX LOUISA

Brisbane-based Alex Louisa graduated with a degree in Journalism and Creative Writing, before the need to create firmly pulled her attention back to her art. Having worked as a graphic artist for eight years, she now focuses solely on her personal work.

In 2008 she had her first solo exhibition at Jugglers Art Space in Brisbane, and has been involved in a number of group shows throughout Australia since then. Her work is now reaching an international audience as a member ofthe PRISMA Collective, showing with a selection of 30 artists from around the world. Her work has been published in Curvy and Semi-Permanent.

Often experimenting with mixed media, especially in the backgrounds of her works, Alex mainly works with drawing materials or oils, currently with a shift towards larger works. She focuses on elements of the natural world that grab her attention – discovering the intricacies of a leaf or flower, or trying to capture an animal’s individual personality, especially those of the avian kind.

Alex grabs every moment she can to work on her artwork, throwing herself into her painting or drawing any moment that her young twin boys are asleep.

My painting class with Alex was wonderful. My favourite yet! The space at Work-Shop is spacious, the coffee shop is delicious. The space is comfortable, creative, and welcoming. I had such a wonderful experience here, and I know I will be back again. Maybe even to this same very lesson.

The Paint with Alex Lousia workshop was excellent. I enjoyed seeing the demonstrations by Alex and then trying the technics out for myself. It was great to meet Alex, having admired her work for sometime, she was helpful, friendly and bery humble about her magical artworks. A real highlight was seeing some of her works, which had brought along with her to show us. I travelled interstate to attend and the workshop staff were very helpful and friendly, making it easy for me to get there. Thank you.
