Candice Dawn Alexander

"The Fleur De Lis Artist"

VOTED SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA'S BEST ARTIST
Alexander began her 20 year art career peddling her copper engravings at festivals all across the United States. As a starving artist, she lived in her van, printing her work on a small printing press that traveled with her. Determined to be free and make a living with her art, she worked tirelessly for 10 years before becoming and "overnight success". She is now one of the most collected and prolific artists in Louisiana, known predominately for her Fleur De Lis, mixed media designs, original engravings and 3D Art. She lives in a constant creative state, working to share her passion with the world.
