Alex lives in Southend on Sea in the UK.

I like to make beautiful images. I like them to be fun; sometimes I like them for other reasons as well. It's really what captures my imagination and what I feel about an image and what I feel it is saying. I like to treat each as an entity in its own right. I chose the sea front amusements as a subject because I liked all the colours and shapes. They are fun, and sometimes they seem to reflect something of the world. I follow my response to what I see and create my imagery from that.
