Born 22 July 1997, Alex studied A-Level Art at West Buckland School, North Devon.
Growing up in North Devon, Alex is inspired by the coastline around him, visiting local beaches such as Saunton and Woolacombe has hugely impacted Alex as an artist. For Alex, the sea means so much more than simply waves crashing on the shore; the power and beauty of the ocean is something he wishes to capture in every one of his paintings. Alex often visits Saunton, propping his canvas down on the cliff edge, trying to capture the sheer energy unleashed by the crashing waves.
Alex doesn't strive to paint a direct representation or technically impressive piece of art but rather creates his own impression of the seascape around him, allowing you to view it through his eyes. To envoke a response within the viewer, changing their perspective, transporting them from a gallery into the sea itself. Alex is often asked how he makes each of his works so different. Whilst the subject matter remains the same, each one of his paintings will be entirely unique. In reality, the sky and sea never remain the same, there is never the same sunset or cloud formation, the sky is ever-changing and that is something that Alex wishes to emulate in his artwork.
Alex says, "I want to capture more than just a seascape, not simply the formation of clouds or the breaking of waves, but rather a feeling, the very essence of the sea itself."
