Alexa Grace spoke of her artistic journey, working with notable illustrators, such as Edward Gorey. She began illustrating for The Atlantic Monthly, Harpers, The Village Voice, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, both Time and LIFE Magazines, Newsweek, The Washington Post, The Detroit Free Press, L.A.

headshot-resized“I was born in Italy. My education was up to 8th grade. I came to the USA when I was seventeen. My first job was pressing baby clothes. After I did gardening and landscaping, I worked in the garden of Pauline Trigère. She had many exotic plants that she wanted to look as beautiful as possible. I had to clip them all by hand. That’s when I began to see the wonders and beauty of nature.

In the late eighties, I had a massive heart attack. The doctor told me I had to stop landscaping. The first few months I did not know what to do. I started to paint but did not like it. Then I started to carve and do clay statues and I loved it.

When I walk in the woods, certain shapes of roots get my attention and I have to stop to pick them up. As soon as I put my hands on them, I see what they will look like and what they will become. My job is just to carve certain spots to highlight what I see.

I have been creating these woodcarvings for over twenty years. Some of them have been on display at the New Rochelle library and other local businesses. I have won many prizes for my artwork including first, second, and third prize.”
