“Life is a journey. Taking the time to know why my client is drawn to the imagery they are drawn to provides me with an additional layer of understanding as an artist. It enables me to create something that is not only visually stunning, but is also an authentic representation of the imageries inward significance to the individual. I like to understand people.”- AAR
Alexis is a classically trained painter, illustrator, sculptor, photographer and certified body art practitioner. A graduate of Tufts University, and the prestigious School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
Alexis works primarily on large scale custom pieces, sleeves, chest pieces, back pieces etc. If she is not inspired by an idea she will simply say- “I am not the artist for that.”
“My intent is never to offend anybody by turning them away. I always do so as politely and gently as possible. I just believe that great work comes from a place of passion, and if a design seems flat or meaningless then it is hard for me to wrap my heart around it. Sounds a tad sappy, I know- but if my heart is not in something- I don’t touch it. Life is too short. There are plenty of Tattooists who will drill anything into a person, anywhere, to make a quick buck- I am not one of those. I am not the artist for that.”
This does not mean that she will turn you away for wanting a smaller Tattoo. If it is visually intriguing, she understands your connection to it, and she’s getting “good vibes” from you- she will embrace your medium or small piece with the same passion she brings to her big projects.
Outside of the studio, Alexis is a constant student, with a passion for learning. She gets her inspiration from many forms of art, classical & contemporary visual arts, music, even mixed martial arts.
Alexis is a Jiu-Jitsu blue belt who trains and competes for Chris Manley MMA. She also trains in Muay Thai, American KickBoxing & Judo, twice a week assistant coaching the youth self-defense programs at Chris Manley MMA in Adams Mass.
She is passionate about anatomy & physiology, biology, physics & psychology. She is an avid explorer and outdoors enthusiast. If you do not find her in her Studio, she is probably out on some kind of adventure soaking up inspiration.
