A Passion For Painting

Story posted December 9, 2014 in News by Meghan Snyder & Nicole Suder


Alex Owens has spent years cultivating her love and skill for art after a childhood injury forced Alex inside during elementary school recess. She found herself keeping her hands busy with crafts and art projects to keep up with her running mind.

Alex Suffers from ADD but does not let that get in the way of reaching her goals and fulfilling her potential. As a self-described ambitious worker, Alex fills her days stretching canvas, finding subjects and working on her oil painting skills.
