ABOUT ALEX

Artist, Designer, Creative... Originally from a theatre background as a designer and technical manager, I now focus on producing original digital and printed artworks, and on providing graphic and web design solutions to small businesses and not-for-profit organisations.

I work from my own loft-studio in Broadbottom, near Manchester where I find constant inspiration from the stunning Peak District/Derbyshire landscape that's only a stones-throw away.

My current artwork focuses on 2 main themes: the first being environment/landscape, and the second being politics/philosophy. Only recently have I felt a real need to find my voice regarding political issues, and art is a wonderful way of doing this. My current practice is split between digital works and relief printmaking using linocuts.

I show my work at exhibitions, and can often be found at arts and crafts markets in the North West. A list of previous exhibitions can be found below and forthcoming events will be posted on the right, so check back regularly! I also post all events on Facebook and Twitter.
