Alex Steele-Morgan was born in Pembrokeshire and grew up exploring the area. She knew from a very early age she wanted to pursue a career in art. After graduating in 1999 from the University of Plymouth with a BA Honours in illustration, she returned to Pembrokeshire, before eventually moving to Carmarthenshire. Alex illustrated professionally straight after graduating, and during her illustration career worked for various high-profile clients including - Marks & Spencer, Ladybird, Penguin, Oxford University Press & Reader's Digest.
Alex now focuses on creating her own artworks and loves to paint figurative, stylised local depictions of characters and animals, which she paints on canvas board using Winsor and Newton Professional acrylic paint. She always applies a matt varnish when finished, which offers longevity to the artwork as well as UV protection. Alex is happiest when painting or being outside, finding inspiration in the light effects and colours of the beautiful Welsh countryside.
