Heritage Room Featured Artist: Alex Oesch
Gratitude. Humility. Generosity. Compassion. Authenticity. Levity. Alexandria Oesch uses the canvas as a vehicle to express her philosophy of life. Nothing worth having comes easy, there are no shortcuts. Countless canvasses are painted and painted over again in a pursuit to capture and articulate what is in her head and heart. For Alex, painting is more than an artistic endeavor. It goes beyond a therapeutic exercise. Painting is as essential as breathing. For Alex, to live is to paint.
