High Artist Spotlight: Alexis Moulds

Alexis has always been pulled towards visual art, drawing and painting in particular. Coming from a creative family on both sides, art kind of chose her. The combination of moving a lot in her youth (due to her dad's job) and being an only child until she was 12 gave Alexis a lot of alone time to express herself using art. It has definitely taken over her life and she wouldn't have it any other way. She creates work which is inspired by the natural world, animals, and music. Illustration rules her world but she sprinkles in fine art when she can, as this was the foundation of her creative journey. At the moment, Alexis is focusing on gig posters for musicians and plans to dip her toes in to screen printing in the near future.
We recently caught up with Alexis after High Art 2023 to learn more about her most recent inspirations:
