Alexis Price was born in Philadelphia, PA (1984) and received her BA in Modern Dance from Meredith College (Raleigh NC) in 2006. Alexis’ only formal art training was in dance, and for many years painting was her main creative outlet outside of her profession as a dancer. At age 30 Alexis retired from performing to focus solely on painting. Continuing using her body as a form of self-expression, her work is largely self-portrait style and autobiographical. Alexis works with oils to create her vivid, wild, and highly feminine portraits. Her paintings slant towards the animalistic, as she incorporates anthropomorphism into her portraiture as a way to communicate expression.
Alexis has an extensive solo and group show history including showing work at Art Basel Miami, Sally Centigrade Gallery in Lakewood Colorado, BX Spaces in Brooklyn, FEED Gallery in Raleigh, NC and Underground Gallery in Portland, Or. Alexis has also been featured in online art blogs and publications such as WOW x WOW Art, Beautiful Bizarre, and Art For The Sick. She is currently working exclusively as an artist, living and raising her daughter in Northern Maine.
