• Alexandra Dickens

    Contemporary British Artist

    My soulful and expressive paintings are the culmination of more than thirty years creative experience and experimentation. Both my abstract and landscape paintings draw on the vibrant light and shadow of the rugged coast of Cornwall. Using a mixture of tools and media, I apply paint instinctively with expressive gestures, building up layers and textures until the final composition emerges. 

    My work can be seen in both private homes and corporate collections worldwide.



    Over the years I have created unique paintings, in various sizes, for private clients as well as site-specific commissions, nationally and internationally, for restaurants, hotels and offices in addition to cohesive collections for commercial spaces.

    Happy to chat through the options anytime just give me a call.  


    Visiting my studio

    After running my own successful gallery in St Ives Cornwall for many years it is now possible to see my work and where it is created.

    I welcome visitors year round, just let me know when you would like to visit.



    “This is visceral, energetic work that cannot but prompt a strong emotional response.”
    Cornwall Today

    “Since her first exhibition at New York’s 28th Street Gallery in the mid 1980s, Alexandra’s vibrant, abstract paintings have reflected a life lived with a considerable force of energy.”
