Alexandra Dell'Amore

    Alexandra Dell'Amore was born in New Jersey and studied at the Art Student's League and the National Academy, both in New York City.  She has been painting since her childhood.

    She received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and won the Gene Alden Walker Award and Elizabeth Morse Genius Award among many others. She has had several one-person shows, including The Hunterdon Art Center and Museum.

   Dell'Amore said: "Painting for me is an intuitive expression of the ongoing changing universe."

Artist's Statement

     I believe art is an expression of the expansion of the creative universe, ever changing and unfolding. I don't really plan some paintings. I may have an idea and start to paint; and the painting begins to express itself. Of course, with landscapes and portraits, that may not happen because the subject is right there before my eyes.

     My Perpetrator Series of intertwined figures represent my past abuse by an evil man. I later published my memoir "Hush Hush and Other Veneers" about my life during this time and how I managed to survive.

   I have painted since I was a little girl. I began painting with a canary wing feather and food coloring. I lived on a farm far from traditional art supplies.

    In the 1980's I attended The Art Students League of New York and the National Academy School of Fine Arts in New York City. I didn't have to pay for most of my classes because I was a monitor for Daniel Dickerson. I am lucky to have had the opportunity to paint and write. I hope you enjoy my diverse paintings.
