Art runs through Alex Lindquist in various threads of form. She is an artist, photographer, writer and teacher. Her eclectic background, which in ways is mimicked in her art, started when she studied architecture and design at Spring Garden College and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and an Associate Degree in Art. She has a Master of Fine Arts in Writing from Manhattanville College. Her art, photography, poetry and short stories have been published in the internationally acclaimed literary journal Inkwell, Quiddity, Anak Sastra, riverSedge and Emerge Literary Journal. She was a graphic designer for over 15 years and had her own award-winning design studio. Currently, Alex teaches English at The Harvey School in Katonah, NY, and also moderates various writing and art workshops. She lives in Mahopac, New York with her husband and two daughters.
Alex blends her passion for creating in her art work. With the careful eye of a designer, she merges colorful pieces of photographs from magazines to create her own image with interesting compositions and depth. The images she creates take on different meanings from where the audience stands. Up close you can see fragments of a ship, a tree, the limb of a person or a colorful fabric pattern, but from far back the composition blends and forms into a whole other image. But more importantly, Alex tries to create a mood and a visually intriguing piece of art that will draw people’s attention over and over again, and give them something new to discover every time they look.
