Alexandra’s talent was instantly recognized as crowds came to see her amazing and often monumental paintings. She attracted the attention of art critics and the media who began telling the world about this rarest of child prodigies – an artist who had mastered drawing and color, an artist who had created a visual language of her own, in a unique, lyrical, figurative, abstract manner, an artist who had only recently turned nine years old.
By age ten, she was producing strikingly accomplished canvases, which were easily compared to the work of talented, fully mature artists. Her works have a developed artistic personality, highly sophisticated and fully alive to the nuances and possibilities of her medium.
In November of 1999, at the age of only fourteen, Alexandra was selected by the World Federation of United Nations to lead a Global Arts Initiative involving more than 100 Nations. She was at this time given the honorary title of Ambassador of Peace and Goodwill through the Arts from the UN.
