|"As I paint, I try to capture more than just a literal image of the subject that is in front of me. I also strive
to capture the mood or emotion that I experience while viewing the scene as well. For instance, the
intensity of the color I use mirrors the intensity of my experience while painting a particularly beautiful
scene. I especially enjoy the strong light and color contrasts of the South Carolina landscape. Marshes
at sunset, flowering fields and rugged gardens are favorite subjects of mine that I return to again and
again." - Alexandra Kassing
Alexandra received early artistic training from her mother, an artist and sculptor, and from her
grandmother, a landscape painter. Her artistic studies became more serious during a five-year stay in
Paris, France during the 1990’s where she studied both Studio Arts and Art History. She is particularly
influenced by the French Impressionists and Post-Impressionists.
