About the Artist

Welcome! My name is Alexa Cahill, and art has been a part of my life for about as long as I've had thoughts, but it wasn't until a couple years ago that I started using acrylics and began painting consistently. For me, the artwork is a journey in itself as I form shapes and ideas layer after layer. It's always exciting to see where the painting will take me and how it evolves from my imagination on canvas. I strive to create moments where aspects of nature combine with elements of humanity in unique ways. I love to explore our connection with nature both positively and negatively, as well as different ideas of what "nature" truly means in different contexts. I leave my work open to interpretation and aim to invoke curiosity, emotion and connection with others. I experiment with other mediums as well when my imagination takes me there! 

I'm mostly inspired by my time spent within cities, and in contrast by my experiences in the woods on hiking trails and exploring abandoned places. People's perspectives, mental health, and passage of time have become running themes throughout my work as it evolves. The support I've received since I began sharing my art several years ago has been greater than I could have ever imagined. I am so excited to continue to share my work with you all, and continue to grow as an artist.             

Wishing everyone happiness and health,                                                                                                                                                                                Alexa
