About Alexandra

Born in Santa Fe, New Mexico Alexandra Becker-Black has been creating art all of her life. Formally trained in Illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design, Alexandra’s relationship with watercolors started with an odd step when she was forced to choose a new medium after developing an allergic reaction to Oil Paints. Within weeks of first painting watercolors Alexandra found her medium and her new voice. Years later, the majority of her technique is still self-taught through her natural exploration of the paint and its applications.

Long before a paintbrush ever touched her hand, drawing was Alexandra’s original medium. She continues to draw today, exploring new techniques and concepts by pushing the boundaries between realism and dreamscapes.
