Ann Alexander was born in north Georgia with a love for the beautiful area landscapes. Throughout her life, she was always fascinated with the colors and changes that came with each season. When her nest emptied, she started to paint in oils with classical instruction from Mary Lydia McCrary. Alexander studied in workshops with several nationally acclaimed artists including Marc Chatov, Roseta Santiago, Robert Johnson, Tom Browning, Ken Backhaus, Kevin MacPherson, and Anne Blair Brown. She works in oils and is much influenced by the Old Masters. Her subjects include still life, portraiture, and plein air landscapes.
Alexander's Work has been juried into local, state, and national shows. Her paintings are in numerous collections throughout the Southeast. She is a member of Plein Air Fine Arts Association, Oil Painters of America, Women Painters of the Southeast, and Georgia Art League. She lives in Gainesville, Georgia and paints almost daily at her studio at her studio at the Blue Angel Gallery in downtown Gainesville.
