"As a student schlepping drinks to earn her way through college, Alexandra Hall watched her patrons carefully as they slipped into topsy-turvy conversation and sometimes on to sloppy oblivion. Hall entertained herself by attaching a variety of cartoonish traits to hobbling drinkers. Anthropomorphic characters lived in her mind, each one a reflection of a customer. Most became images of juicy, high-society frogs, the first growing from a particularly well-dressed woman adorned with a hat, heels and pearls. Hall collected the images in her mind, then set to work on canvas where she released bold colors with broad brush strokes, capturing the energy of her characters with a sense of humor spiked with sarcasm."

"My imaginative spirit is born from the people who inspired me to dream, to see things differently and to live fearlessly. Every work is influenced by hundreds of little moments and extraordinary experiences. In my pieces I try to bring some whimsy into the mundane. It is my hope that I force my audience to exercise their imagination, that my works inspire conversation and that they evoke joy."
