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.

I booked this months in advance. I woke up on the morning grumpy and unmotivated, and critical of myself. I dragged myself to the work-shop anyway because I didn't want to waste the money I had spent. I got a coffee, and sat down and met a few people around me. Everyone was excited because Alex Louisa's work was gorgeous and when she taught, she embraced everyone's individual talents. She was down to earth and made it really easy to just pick up a brush and paint. I criticized every stroke but Alex Louisa encouraged me that it was all a part of the experience. Everyone else encouraged me too. I played around and kept painting, and drawing and painting. I didn't like my creation at the end of it, but everyone there was super positive. I went back home and didn't want to look at this "art" I had made however, I did anyway. And now I love it. I love my little birdy whom I have named "Hubert." He sits perched next to my window, and inspires me daily to just ... paint. Doesn't need to be anything, just paint. Alex Louisa really did show me techniques where art does not need to be refined, it can be fun and playful and beautiful, and now I'm a little less critical of myself. Thanks Hubert, and thanks Alex, especially.

A terrific workshop with many new skills and ideas taught! Alex is a wonderful artist and was extremely helpful in sharing her skills within her students! The venue was easy to get to and was nice and light and airy! The experience was definitely worthwhile.
