Ann Alexander got a late start to painting. She first picked up a paintbrush after her children left the nest for college, simply as an outing with friends. That fateful excursion led to a passion she never knew existed, studying and learning from the ground up about paints, stretching canvases and mastering techniques with color and light.
Alexander’s oil paintings feature still life scenes, landscapes and portraits. Her realistic style plays with light and color, offering the glint of the sun on a shiny object or the reflection of a bird over water. As a lifelong resident of North Georgia, she incorporates many local scenes in her paintings, reflecting the warm clay soil or the blue skies over the mountains.
Her work has been featured in many local, regional and national shows and is regularly available at the Watson Gallery in Atlanta and the Quinlan Visual Arts Center in Gainesville, Georgia.
