Alexandra Lavizzari has spent most of her life travelling and living in various Asian countries, such as Nepal, Pakistan and Thailand, before she finally settled down in Somerset in 2009. Originally a writer she has published several novels and literary essays and 2 volumes of poetry in German, her native language, and only painted occasionally. Recently though, she rediscovered this art form and is now busy catching up lost time by painting and drawing on a more regular basis. Painting for her means exploring the interaction of colour and form in order to create particular moods.
She finds painting and photographing a very challenging and rewarding alternative to writing and is glad that the environment she lives in gives her so much inspiration. Alexandra Lavizzari has exhibited in various local venues such as Crowcombe Church House, Taunton Library, Somerton Town Hall and The Bear Inn in Wiveliscombe. She is also a member of Somerset Art Works.
