Alexandra E. Thomas was born in Christiana Delaware in 1990. Journeying often from “The First State,” she traveled with family all through her younger years to numerous cities and parks around the U.S. and other countries including the U.K., France, and Mexico. During each trip, drawing became her favorite pastime. Touring cities and exploring woodlands in her early years garnered a reverence for history, art, and nature. In high school she studied in Advanced Placement art studio and art history classes and later won her school’s superlative for "Best Artist." She soon moved to Philadelphia, PA and earned multiple scholarships and a BFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. There she studied under their faculty of prestigious artists and teachers, taking liberal arts courses as well as artistic classes, which expanded her knowledge of classical anatomy, perspective, drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture.
Afterwards, she continues to paint and shows her new artworks in various juried group exhibitions regionally. She is also affiliated with the Philadelphia Sketch Club, the Plastic Club, and The Philadelphia Plein Air Painters, among other local groups. She works for companies that sell art utensils and picture frames, and also teaches occasional painting/drawing workshops to help new artists and outsider artists achieve aesthetic goals for their creative expression. Her studio is currently based in Bear, Delaware.
