Born in 1945 at Bideford, north Devon, Alexandra has lived in Devon, Dorset, and for 22 years in Windsor Great Park. She has now returned to her home in Devon to enjoy teaching and painting.

As a painter, her early commercial work developed into private commissions for animal studies and wildlife subjects. A large body of her work is owned privately in the Home Counties and includes work done for the late Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.

After gaining her Honours Degree in Fine Art at Farnham University College of Art and Design, she won a competition for public Art at Frimley Park Hospital funded by the pharmaceutical company Novartis. These paintings were in acrylic and were based upon cell structures researched in the hospital library and can be seen in the hospital corridors. Her paintings in oil include local landscapes and seascapes as well as interiors. Her method of working usually includes very quick watercolour studies on site before developing the work further in the studio. She says: "I love the changing light on the landscape and the dynamics of the coast and my aim is to capture in colour and mark a sense of movement and place".

She has exhibited in the Mall Galleries, London, and has had work accepted by the Royal Academy. She is a member and Trustee of the Southwest Academy of Fine and Applied Arts, and in 2008 was elected a member of the 21 Group of experimental Devon based artists. She has exhibited in many exhibitions in Devon with the South West Academy and in recent years work has also been selected to hang in "The Great Create" at Greenway (2008) and "Blank Canvas" Torre Abbey (2009) and again in the Torre Abbey Contemporary Open the following year. In 2010 a one-man show was held at N.T. Greenway.

Recently Alexandra has exhibited and sold with SWAc at the Brownston Gallery , and at annual SWAc exhibitions at the Stables Gallery Delamore, at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery, Honiton and at SWAc Open Exhibitions at The Castle in Exeter.
