Alexandra Squire, a minimalistic Abstract Painter shares her experience:

Alexandra Squire is an artist and businesswoman who is the founder of Alexandra Squire Fine Art. Originally hailing from Bethesda, MD, Alexandra was previously a journalist who quit her job after realising that she was not cut out for it. Talking about her art process, it consists of two important steps- Blending and Layering. These two techniques are responsible for enhancing the work in colour and depth. Alexandra has a unique style where she combines vibrant tones with muted tones. Her aim is to portray her artworks as a metaphor for different things in life. “ I have found the richness in life, like art, comes from the many layers we add and the many ways in which our lives blend together”, added Alexandra. 

Famous and talented painters like Mark Rothko, Helen Herzbrun, and also her grandmother, had a certain influence on Alexandra which led her to frequently explore museums in her early days. In general. Alexander tends to work with oil pastels, acrylics, and, most recently, resin. “My resin pieces are admired for their ability to be both simple and deceivingly complex.  I explore the process of slowly blending darker colours with others that lighten them.  This exercise in patience and precision is a reminder that we cannot rush growth – it comes about in its own organic way, unencumbered by deadlines and force.” says Alexandra. She looks forward to seeing Alexandra Squire Fine Art become synonymous with accessible fine art.  Also wants to see a line of plate ware, vases, or other home goods when people hear “Alexander Squire Fine Art”. 

“My story isn’t unique or special, but I think it is a testament to what can happen when you believe in yourself and trust your gut”, said Alexandra. Pursuing Journalism might have given her an enormous amount of success but she would not have been able to cherish it completely. “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” This is quoted by one of the most famous poets, Mary Oliver. It was stuck in Alexandra’s head for the longest. Her realisation came when she was a mother of two and had a stable income source but she chose to not settle for less. This is the power of self-belief.

Alexandra still has a lot more talent to express and many parts of her individuality she wishes to explore through art. If you want to know more about Alexandra Squire and her fine artwork you can check out her social media handle (link down below)
