Alexis Baranek Art

Hello and welcome to my Gallery

I am an artist living in beautiful Tennessee, USA and I have been painting for 50 years. I was born in St. Augustine, Florida, which is a very "artsy" city, lived a few other places including Charleston, South Carolina and Lake City, Florida before we realized our dream of living in Tennessee where I love the mountains and changes of seasons. Every area has provided inspiration for paintings! Mountains, local flowers and greenery, the ocean and other bodies of water and the unique lighting, weather patterns and experiences all affect the choices an artist makes in creating.

My paintings are in collections across the United States as well as England and Canada. I work in various mediums and styles and I find this gives me much more inspiration and keeps things fresh. I especially enjoy landscapes done in oils and acrylics in a realistic or impressionistic style but more recently I have ventured into trying various intuitive techniques that provide the viewer with both representational and non-representational images that are totally unique. Some of my paintings, especially the more abstract ones, are created in layers with various mixed media such as collage of papers, stamps, etc., powdered metallic pigments, gold leaf, texture gels and molding pastes. Often in photographs metallic accents will show up more as flat color - such as gold showing up as yellow. Additionally textures will sometimes not really show to full advantage on a website photograph. Be sure and look at the larger versions by clicking on the thumbnails and feel free to email me with any questions you may have. I am also willing to photograph details in any painting and send you the pictures by email. My paintings can be ordered by email and shipped by mail but also if you live or are in the area of Spring City, Tennessee, arrangements can be made to see paintings in person. I also welcome comments, suggestions, questions or anything else related to my art!

The website is being revised with new paintings added all the time so be sure and check back! Even more frequenly, new paintings are uploaded to my site on Artmajeur. Paintings can be purchased directly from there or by contacting me directly and can be paid for using paypal. I will consider other forms of payment on an individual basis. I have also recently been accepted as a Vango artist. You can also visit my Facebook Art Page for updates or to comment.
