Alexandra Ackerman's Profile

About

I grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I first experienced the joy of watercolor painting in second grade at the Waldorf School, and it is still my favorite medium because it has a life of its own. I have always been fascinated and inspired by nature, and have spent many hours watching things grow. As a child I created my own little worlds out of paper, fabric, and found objects. I loved to transform myself and my surroundings through imagination. As a young adult I worked on vegetable farms, finding a romantic beauty in the dirt and weeds. I studied painting and printmaking at Massachusetts College of Art. I have also lived and painted in Chicago, Minneapolis, and Northern Wisconsin. I currently reside in Iowa City with my husband and our two children.
