Featured Artist for January – March: Alexandria Winslow

Alexandria Winslow Artist Bio

For Alexandria Winslow artistic expression comes naturally in many forms. She was raised by her grandmother, an artist/writer/dancer, and grandfather, who was an engineer. Being nurtured and encouraged in such a wonderfully creative and inventive environment as a child really had a lasting impact on her.

As a young girl Alexandria exhibited her work and won awards. She went on to college for several years with an emphasis in fine art and continued drawing and painting. With a young and bold entrepreneurial spirit, she left college to open her first business in the salon industry.

Through the years Alexandria started and ran several other businesses as well. Always looking for a creative way to make a living, she owned a custom area rug shop, a small artisan gallery, a remodeling business and a paint contracting business. During her time as a paint contractor she focused on decorative finishes and faux painting. She has also become known for her bright and whimsical mural work.

Her many years of entrepreneurship brought her full circle to a full-time painting career. She now paints every day and is enjoying building her career as a fine artist. Living in the Southwest Desert has inspired her to paint the environment she lives in and loves. Her vibrant contemporary renditions of the Southwestern landscape are delightful and fun!

Alexandria has been a featured artist in a number of art festivals and shows, and her art has been chosen for several show posters including “Old Tucson Studios” which owns the original “Music in the Desert”. They have it on display in their museum collection.

The University of Arizona has a permanent collection of her work in the Eller College of Business.

The Children’s Hospital Central California is a collector of her art.

The Phoenix Sky Harbor Art Museum features her work in its Arizona Weather Exhibit.
