Alexandra Walters – Working with Colored Pencils
The extraordinary colored pencil drawings of Alexandra Walters are often mistaken for other painting media. Join us for her presentation on Saturday, March 29, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm at the Welles Turner Memorial Library, 2407 Main Street, Glastonbury, CT. Explore the possibilities for this overlooked art media.
Alexandra is self-taught in the medium of colored pencil and considers colored pencils to be her favorite art medium. She loves their rich, vibrant colors and versatility. She is deeply inspired by subject matter found in nature, especially botanicals and landscapes, and loves to spend time hiking and exploring in search of her next subject.
“A flower might only receive a passing glance, but when a viewer tells me that they could almost feel the delicate curls of the petals from my drawing, I know I have shared the joy I experienced from that flower. I hope that my artwork goes beyond a visual moment, and encourages viewers to see everyday beauty with new eyes”, says Alexandra. Needless to day, her works in colored pencil have been recognized with many awards.
Alexandra graduated with honors from Westfield State College with a B.A. in Art, with a concentration in fine arts and she currently maintains the Serendipity Art Studio at the Indian Orchard Mills in Indian Orchard, Massachusetts. She is a member of the Connecticut River Valley Artists, the Tobacco Valley Artists Association, and the Artists at Indian Orchard Mills. She has studied with award-winning artists, and loves creative exploration as both a teacher and a student.
