No Ordinary Imaginary Magic: Alexandra Eldridge

22 Aug

I always loved listening to my nieces when they were playing alone in their rooms.  Their imaginations, so fertile and free, creating worlds all their own.  So many of us, as we grow older, lose our childlike imaginations.  But artist Alexandra Eldridge obviously still has hers firmly intact, as she crafts imagery full of whimsy and dream-like charm.

Eldridge’s mixed media work combines seemingly disparaged elements in such a enchanting way, they have the feeling of our childhood day dreams.  Reminders of the days when life was filled with possibilities and wonder.

To see more of Alexandra Eldridge’s work, please visit her website.  I discovered her work at Diehl Gallery in Jackson Hole, WY ( more artists to come from Diehl! ).  You can see her work in person there and at other galleries around the country.  Check out her website for details!

      And so many other beautiful examples on her website, too. I had such a hard time choosing which ones to feature. I’m sure these are gorgeous in person, when all the little details would be even more evident!
