Born and raised in Johannesburg South Africa, Alexis Steyn has been drawing and creating art since childhood. Early exposure to the arts, literature and a deep connection to spirituality and our place in the universe has shaped the direction of her work. Alexis draws inspiration from mystical subject matters, the beauty of the natural world and the energy of all living things around us. Her work ranges from illustrations to oil paintings and she often combines traditional and digital media together to create unique pieces that give a nod to her background in graphic design.
With the knowledge that she wanted to pursue a creative career path from a young age, Alexis worked as a retail assistant for over 10 years whilst she studied and started her small business as an artist 4 years later.
After receiving a B.A in Graphic Design from Curtin University and working as a full time graphic designer after her studies, Alexis made the bold decision to follow her true passion and took a leap of faith to start her own art business with the intention to connect with her collectors on a personal level and bring more light, virtue, wonder and beauty into the world through art.
Alexis spends her time continuing to develop her unique style and creates pieces that invite the viewer to explore beauty in its many forms, often evoking deep emotion. As we delve deeper into the heart of the universe, we are left with more questions and possibilities for discoveries yet to come. With this in mind, Alexis seeks to not only elevate the mood of an interior space through her art, but also invites the viewer to connect to her artwork on a level that is personal and intuitive.
"It is my mission to bring the spark of imagination and wonder back into people's lives and remember that carefree feeling that we all had as children. My objective is to create art that is uplifting, to stir emotion and thought, to invite playfulness and open a door to endless possibilities that we could only have dreamed of. My highest goal is to celebrate life and inspire others to embrace their own individuality and the beauty of the world around us. I invite you to take this journey with me as I delve into the unknown and share the beauty that life has to offer through an artistic lens. All we need to do is be inspired and passionate enough to want to create a better reality for ourselves and that begins with imagination." -Alexis Steyn
Alexis currently resides in Perth, Western Australia with her family and loves to travel all over the world to experience different cultures and gain new perspectives from people from all walks of life. She draws on these experiences as inspiration for her art and creates scenes that invites the audience to step into another world of endless possibilities. As an artist who creates with an open heart, Alexis believes that artists have the ability to influence trends and shift culture through visual storytelling. With this in mind, she uses her artistic skills to radiate positivity, uplift the soul, share divine messages and be a part of a movement of artists who are contributing to the greater good of mankind.
