Born and raised in Yorkshire, Alexis moved to Cardiff where she completed a degree in print-making in 2003. She went on to exhibit in and around Wales and Leeds and has had two art residencies. In Summer 2011 after a stint working as a cook, Alexis moved to London with her small, second-hand printing press and began print-making again.
Alexis works in lino, sometimes adding water colour or gouache to complete the print. For inspiration, she looks to old matchbox covers, record sleeves, tea boxes, postcards, explorers, the circus, films and 'Its nice that', where she has been featured. She has since moved back to Yorkshire, where she works from her studio.
Her clients include Penguin Random House, Chicken House, Andersen Press, Lonely Planet, Quadrille Publishing, Scholastic, Picador, Egmont, Stranger and Stranger, Hot Key Books, Orion books, Married to the Sea, and the V&A.
