The Artist

Living by the sea in St Leonards has opened up a whole new horizon…

Originally from Cheshire, I lived as a pioneer for 20 years in Milton Keynes (as far inland as you can get in England) and moved to live by the sea in 2002.

We met Alex and fell completely in love with her paintings which capture so perfectly the raw power and beauty of the sea. We spent the day with Alex filming her painting and talking about why she started painting the sea and what it means to her.
