"Some feel it is our childhood that imprinted upon us a visual language; a place so important to the understanding of our self that we feel at home within the images. Rocks and trees, ponds, and plowed fields bring peace of mind. Color, light and form create my essays on nature." - Alexia Scott
Born in central Ohio, Alexia Scott began painting at an early age. She studied drawing and design at Kent State University and received her MFA in painting from The George Washington University. Alexia was a Lecturer of Fine Arts at Georgetown University, where she taught drawing courses. Her work can be found at the Smithsonian Naturalist Center, The National Zoological Park, and private collections.
Alexia paints her landscapes often in pastel. She begins a painting in the field, and then refines her work in the studio. Once away from the location, the memory of the event and her knowledge of visual expression dominate the work. "The work now becomes what I want to say, not a copy of what I saw," says artist Alexia Scott. She explains how her work is influenced by the philosophy of ink painting, mentally forming the work, then spontaneously constructing it, which allows for the greatest enthusiasm and spirit which becomes visible in the painting.
