Hello. My name is Alexis. I live in the greater Los Angeles area. I spend most of my time developing the fictional world that I have created. I’ve been working on this project for more than a decade. It includes a fully developed language (still in progress), archeology, time lines, histories, culture, and stories. It informs my painting, printmaking, and ceramic work. It saturates my dreams.
The process of world-building brings my unconscious behaviors and thoughts into the light where I can look at them. Holding myself to the values I consciously create for my internal world gives me the support I need to navigate in this manifest place we all share. It gives me a way to be in this world.

My first art gallery show was in Portland, Oregon in 1996. Since then, I've shown in galleries throughout the United States and the Virgin Islands. ( AZ, CA, FL, GA, NJ, NV, NY, OR, PA, WA, St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix.)
I've had solo exhibits at the New York Art Expo and the Las Vegas Art Expo.
