ALEX MCKENZIE

ALEX MCKENZIE

Artist

Alex Mckenzie works in a magical art cupboard full of books and plants. She drinks lots of coffee and would really like to have a parrot for a pet.
Alex is our first port of call when we’re getting the children’s art ready for exhibition. She has a solution for anything to do with mounting / hanging the work and adding the finishing touches.
Alex has her own exhibitions of prints and sculpture and folks have her art in their houses too.
