art

Alexandra Connor spent years studying the painting techniques of the Old Masters, visiting specialists and restorers to acquire the skills used since 15th Century. Applying this knowledge to her work she often uses an under painting of egg tempera to give added luminosity. On top of this she applies many layers of oil glazes to add depth and reality to her work. 

 

The late Pietro Annigoni was Alexandra's mentor. A quote from one of his letters has always inspired her: "It is incredible what you have achieved. Go ahead, and work hard!"
