Using his own photography as reference, he recreates the images in oil, watercolor or acrylics in his studio.

Six of his original watercolor paintings are part of the permanent art collection in the newly built SLU Hospital on Grand Blvd. His artwork is currently represented by Artisans in the Loop Gallery on Delmar Blvd. Alex uses personal experiences as motivation to inspire others in both art and life. With twelve years of non-profit experience, he is a co-founder of the Metro Trans Umbrella Group, and currently volunteers with the Arts as Healing Foundation as an art therapy teacher. Alex has a sincere passion for volunteerism and support organizations; meshing art with an ongoing commitment to positive social change.
