Painting by Alexandra Hall measures 36"x48"x2". This is an original acrylic painting on canvas.
Creating anthropomorphic characters is a big part of how I exercise my imagination, and I enjoy creating alternate worlds on canvas. This work was heavily influenced by the history of fabric. Pattern is a strong theme throughout my work, and it is through carpet weaving, stained glass, textiles and architecture that I pull many of my designs and motifs. I am constanly in awe of the craftsmanship and beauty left behind by creatives who can before me. Filling this character's world with pattern was an absolute delight!

HABERDASHER in the MERCANTILE
"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."
