My name is Alexis Southward and I am the artist in studio at Little Dreamers Wellness Center in Berlin, MD.
I Believe that Art is to Children as Sunshine is to Flowers
Growing up, I always had a sense that being an artist was not a sensible career path. So when the time came for me to go to college, I chose the sensible artistic major- Graphic Design.
I ended up becoming an Artist anyways. And a right messy one at that!
My goal when working with anyone is just that they know that all Art has value. If the creating process can bring you joy, then it is worthy! It has value!
If creating your Art is what you want to do, you should do it!
Sensible is completely overrated.
Alexis has been married to her handsome Rocket Scientist Mike for over 10 years now. Together they have two totally different, but totally awesome kids Ivy & Charlie. She totally digs living by the beach, homeschooling, and all creatures great and small.
Alexis Currently serves on the board for Lemonade Bookstand. At Lemonade Bookstand our mission is to provide literacy resources to children with mental and physical disabilities.
