Based in Toowoomba, Alex has over a decade of experience in creative industries including practicing as an artist, founding and managing artist run spaces (Attic Art Space, made. Creative Space), events & festival programming (Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers, LIT Festival: Stories in Light), community engagement (Toowoomba Regional Council, Grand Central Shopping Centre, Hyperdome Shopping Centre, Clifford Gardens Shopping Centre).
While merging her love of the arts and business together she founded Tinker as creative studio offering art workshops and programming through in-house, event & pop-up partnerships and online content.
Alex’s creative works play with the idea of user experience and personal identity, creating layered automatic imagery which captures a reflection of moments in time. Working primarily in acrylic, watercolour and line work.
Alex passionately believes in the values art contributes to lifestyle. Whether it is through inspiring young artists to grow their creative confidence or having a laugh with a group of adults creating together.
Tinker in invested in developing regional interests in creative industries. Tinker hosts an in house gallery offering space for artists to exhibit. Tinker regularly collaborates with events & partners to create programming focused on activating public spaces.
