About

Alex Baird is an Australian artist with her studio based in Sydney’s north shore.

She loves to paint the ocean, Sydney Harbour and its beautiful curves and the beaches that are a recurrent theme in her paintings.

Australian beaches that feature in some of her favourite locations are Fairy Bower, Manly Beach, Shelly Beach, Balmoral Beach, Sydney Harbour and Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

For decades Alex and her family have frequented the mid north coast of NSW in particular, Bluey’s Beach and Boomerang Beach where she explores the beauty, colour and light of the Australian landscape. Time spent in these special environments over long summers has inspired her recent paintings.

Alex favours the medium of oil paint on canvas, as it allows for expression in her work and brings out a vibrancy in her paintings. Her paintings have a recognisable graphic quality and also painterly feeling that reflects her love of the landscape.

At 17, Alex was awarded the 1989 Ken Done Art Award. In 1992 at just 20 years old, she held her first very successfully solo exhibition at Sydney Harbour’s Oyster Bar. Since the early 1990’s she has run a successful graphic design business and has held several solo and group exhibitions and has a dedicated following.

Alex also paints commissions on request and would love you to get in contact for further information. She can provide an image of the artwork in your space so you can see the size and scale in situ. A select collection of her paintings are available as high quality reproductions.

She is represented in corporate and private collections throughout Australia and can be seen on bluethumb.
