Contemporary American Artist and Self-published Children's book Author
Born in 1985 in the Chicago Suburbs, and now based in San Antonio Texas since 2020, Tiffany Alexandria contrives from her most instinctual notions and creates from an inner place of color and robust imagination. Coming from a previous career in the healthcare industry and having worked as a massage therapist for 10 years, she made the transition toward her true artistic nature, by completing a degree in fine arts. Alexandria has had partial formal artist training and is primarily a self-taught artist. Although ironically having sought out formal artist training, she has been praised by professors and teachers and other highly respected artists for her unacademic artistic style.
Alexandria is a multi-faceted artist, and her creativity is unlimited to style or genre. In 2016 she self-published her first children’s story, inspired by robot comics she drew at the time, these drawings inspired her to write and illustrate a book called, Barbra & Benny Love-bot Save Robotopia. Meanwhile, she continues to develop her creative ideas in different vehicles of expression and has several other unpublished manuscripts yet to be available for distribution.
Constantly evolving her craft, Alexandria’s art is shaped by art movements like the impressionistic era, post-impressionism art, cubism, and 1920s art deco. Yet, her fascination lies with ancient art. Influenced, but not conceptualizing deities from archaic worlds, and directing her views from there, most of her works have been concentrating on celebrating female vitality. While creating empowering cubist and expressive images of women, her goals are to initiate an energizing narrative in her work. Alexandria’s vision comes from a very visceral place and her creative process mostly revolves around her instincts, coming from a place of solitude to gain a unique perspective.
At times Alexandria alchemizes repurposed materials, and much of her work is mixed media. She uses ink, colored pencils, markers, watercolors, acrylic, egg tempera, oil paints, goal leaf, or simply monochromatic expressions with graphite or chalk. Not limiting herself to any strict medium to generate what she can. At times her work will be on wine bottles, cardboard backings, matt board, repurposed wood panels, etc.
Tiffany Alexandria has been on her art journey since 2016 and has received an award for her art from Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles CA, where her art is on display in the iconic art deco building. Her art has also been involved in the 13th Florence Biennale, The Eternal Woman. Alexandria displays her work whenever she can and creates and sells Little Art Greetings, at local cafes and bookstores around San Antonio, Texas. Alexandria works from her home studio where she lives with her husband, daughter, and her cat Ruby.
