Alexa Snyder grew up just outside of Springfield, IL. From a young age, she knew she wanted to be an artist but it wasn’t until high school that she realized she could turn her dream into a reality. During those years, she developed a deep love for figurative art and decided to continue her studies at the college level. Snyder went on to earn her Bachelor of Fine Art from Millikin University in 2013. After graduation, she relocated to Sarasota, Florida drawing inspiration from the area’s vibrant cultural scene and beach life. Her figurative works begin with preliminary sketches in order to sit down at the canvas with a focused idea. A recent move to California has pushed her to explore the edgier side of her aesthetic in her current series, Double Exposure.
