Alex Oliver is a landscape artist based in Suffolk. Her artwork is focused upon an exploration of the serene beauty of the countryside that surrounds her. Specialising in oil paintings on canvas, as well as playful drawings in pastel and watercolour, she captures the peaceful essence of nature with a whimsical touch. Each painting is infused with the positive energy she draws from the natural world, inviting the viewer to immerse themselves in its beauty and tranquillity.


Her traditional approach to painting has evolved from a background following practical art training in Florence and art history at Sotheby’s Institute of Art where she completed her MA in Fine and Decorative Art & Design. Her enthusiasm for the ethereal quality of the Rococo aesthetic alongside the allure of Claudian landscapes fuels her desire to inject her artwork with a representational flourish.


Alongside her most recent MA graduation from Sotheby’s Institute of Art in 2024, she received her BA in Fine Art and History of Art at the University of Leeds in 2019. Alex has exhibited all over the UK, including Leeds, London, Cambridge and overseas in Canada. Her work has been complimented by winning the Berkofsky Award in 2019, and being shortlisted for the FUAM Graduate Art Prize. 


Alongside this Alex also has skills completing murals and paintings around atmospheric music and dance.
