Alexandra Nicole has two primary passions: painting and the natural world.
Growing up on an island, she was constantly surrounded by the beauty of the low country. Having painted her entire life it was only natural for her to combine her passions by creating artwork that reflects her admiration for coastal ecosystems. She spends most of her days painting the marsh, birds, fish, all sorts of wild creatures, plants, shells, sharks teeth and more.
Alexandra originally focused on her passion for the environment by going to college and getting degrees in Wildlife Biology and Fisheries Science. She pursued a career as a biologist, working with a number of species from leatherback sea turtles on St. Kitts and Nevis to feral cats on Jekyll Island, GA to shorebirds throughout the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico.

Alexandra Nicole is a wildlife biologist turned full-time artist. Throughout her career as a biologist she began to develop her art business as a parallel venture. She loved the travel and work experience that wildlife biology offered, but she always came back to her artwork as a way to connect and share her passion with a wider audience of people. She is now well-known for coastal artwork throughout the South.
She paints her subjects with the intention of connecting viewers to the natural world, with hopes that it will foster an appreciation for nature and inspire others to protect and conserve it. Her paintings depict these subjects as seen through her eyes, by portraying their beauty found in nature, just as she sees them - she also hopes this connects viewers more closely to nature and inspires them to protect it. Helping others recognize the intrinsic value of wild things and wild lands by portraying the beauty found in nature is just a small step in the right direction.
