Alexandra Sherman

Alexandra was born in New York City but spent much of her childhood living in London and traveling across Europe with her family. Much of the art and architecture that she was exposed to while traveling through the continent became the basis for her love of art, especially Victorian paintings and medieval manuscript illuminations.

After she received her Master of Fine Arts from the University of Wisconsin, Madison she moved to the DC area and has since focused on drawing, painting and exhibiting her watercolors. Recently Alexandra has been painting on non-traditional watercolor surfaces such as synthetic non-absorbent paper and colored backgrounds. She is drawn to positive and negative space and their role in composition.

Alexandra was also the curator of the Dadian Gallery and teaches drawing and painting in a variety of different settings and formats. She lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina from 2014-15, where she was an Artist-in-Residence and explored new scenery and aesthetics. She recently moved to Maryland.
