Alexis creates many unique & beautiful designs and logos exclusively for The Angel and her work can be seen throughout the hotel.
Alexis graduated in Fine Art Printmaking from The University of Wales
Institute, Cardiff in 2003. The following year, she took up her first
residency at The Art Shop to work on a printmaking project gathering her
inspiration and imagery from Abergavenny, and in particular, the town
buildings and immediate landscape. The work was so successful that she was invited back as Artist-in-Residence to produce a new body of work entitled ‘Abergavenny & The Marches’. Travelling further afield, into the local landscape, her work illustrates her unique way of interpreting our everyday surroundings.
Working primarily with the lino-block relief printing process, she
has also experimented using small detailed wood-blocks. Also published
for the first time is – ‘A Tale of Good and Evil and Angels and Dragons’, a colouring book by Alexis and Rob Snell, commissioned by The
Angel Hotel in Abergavenny.
Below is just one example of the many incredible designs created by Alexis..
