Alexandra Nicole Newton
Alexandra Nicole Newton has two primary passions: painting, and the natural world. Growing up on an island, she was constantly surrounded by the beauty of the lowcountry. Having painted her entire life it was only natural for her to combine her passions by creating artwork that reflects her admiration for coastal ecosystems.
Alexandra originally focused on her passion for the environment by going to college and getting degrees in Wildlife Biology and Fisheries Science. She pursued a career as a biologist, working with a number of species from sea turtles on St. Kitts and Nevis to feral cats on Jekyll Island, GA to shorebirds throughout the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. Throughout her career as a biologist Alexandra had begun to develop her art business as a parallel venture. Although she loved the travel and work experience that wildlife biology offered, she always came back to her artwork. She felt it was a way to connect and share her passion with a wider audience of people. She is now a full-time painter and well-known name in coastal artwork throughout the South.
Alexandra Nicole’s logo is represented by a hand drawn mandala. Often used in Eastern religions, the mandala symbolizes unity and harmony. This is the root of what Alexandra wishes to accomplish with her art. She hopes her paintings will foster an appreciation for the natural world and inspire others to protect and conserve the environment. Helping others recognize the intrinsic value of wild things and wild lands by portraying the beauty found in nature is just a small step in the right direction.
