As an artist, entrepreneur, corporate trainer and workplace chaplain, Shani Alexander is known for her joie de vivre and paints with a boldness that flaunts her joy of living, grabbing life by both hands in celebration. It wasn't always this way for Shani, who was a grand finalist in the 2010 Entrepreneurship Challenge for a national company that she walked away from after her brother died. Her natural grieving allowed her to go inside and rethink the direction of her life and what emerged was a transformational change to workplace chaplaincy, a tree change and returning to her first love, painting. She sees them powerfully linked as working alongside suffering has put into focus the gift of life and how vibrant and alive everything is. Her philosophy is to capture life because she understands the human spirit and the healing power of her message is that colour can help you rise above the ordinary.
Shani studied painting and printmaking at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia and the themes of spirituality, colour and expressionism are woven into the details of her designs which she often re-works to curate strongly together as a complimentary story. She has participated in numerous shows and works and practices from her studio where the Yarra Valley meets the city of Melbourne.
