Alexa Smith currently resides in Portland, OR.
Her main genre is landscape painting with acrylic paint and a matte gel medium on raw canvas. Her collage paintings are executed with acrylic paint and ink pencils on raw canvas, which are then cut and strategically adhered to panels.
Her works are largely inspired by the Abstract Expressionists, including Jackson Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler, Mark Rothko, and others who pioneered acrylic painting and the effects of color. She is also influenced by the colors and strokes of Vincent Van Gogh.
