Hi, my name is Alexandra Merkx-Jacques and I'm excited to be one of the core artists participating in @brushstrokes_of_nova_scotia's fifth Online art show and sale. Please let me know if you wish to be tagged when any of these paintings are posted in the sale such that you don’t miss your opportunity to buy them! I'm a self taught artist and a trained molecular microbiologist currently living in Nova Scotia, Canada. I'm very lucky to have the opportunity to study and appreciate nature both at the bench and at the easel. I'm a Scientist by day, Artist by night, Human the whole time. Here are a few of the paintings I'll be showing this weekend- I hope you'll join us!

Window shopping at the Hydrostone Market SOLD! . . . It's been a busy time juggling my scientist by day and human the whole time parts of my life the last months—how is it ONLY June?! . I'm pleased to say this painting has found a forever home. I am very thankful to @lkyarns for their support with having displayed this painting (and another painting depicting other Hydrostone buildings) as well as as offering to sell my art prints and cards of these paintings in their store! . Inspired during a @nscadextendedstudies course some time ago, this painting presented several fun challenges including painting both buildings and people. Still something I have to continue experimenting with but I’m proud of this one. I’m touched someone loved it enough to take it home. :) . Meanwhile, I hope you all are continuing to take care of your mental health during these difficult times. 2020 is giving us so many great lessons for us to learn as well! Let us be proud of the history currently being written- what the stories we'll be telling the next generations!
Landscape inspired by Georgiana de Albuquerque SOLD! Note art prints are available for sale- contact me for info. . . . Hi everyone! I've been quiet these days on social media as I've had to decrease my Artist by night activities while taking care of my Scientist by day and Human the whole time part during these challenging times. . I wish I could share more but as I'm sure you probably feel yourself- the last 5 months of 2020 have felt way longer than it has been! So many changes in such a small period of time. Some sad events but also some exciting events. It's been a great reminder to learn to take better care of ourselves. . Hoping you all have been able to do what you need to cope with what life is throwing at us. I'm optimistic that we're learning important lessons both personally and as societies. . I'm also so grateful that people are still appreciating my art. I suppose it's true that if we have to stay home, it's a great opportunity to have beautiful things to stare at. 😀

Pleased to say that my two donated paintings were sold last night at the @adsumforwomen Adsum House Mystery night. What a great way to support a great cause. It's also nice to feel supported as an artist to know that people appreciate your art itself even when they don't know whose art they're buying.
#marchmeetthemaker2020 Day 11 Range. * Some people may see my art and be confused about what type of artist I am. One day I'm painting landscapes, another day I'm painting land animals or an underwater scene and suddenly there's a crazy abstract thrown in there! * Well, I see my art as a way to experiment with different styles, colours, or themes. I predominantly paint for myself and hope others like the paintings as well and may wish to purchase them (FYI those posted here are all currently available). But if noone buys, at least I enjoyed painting them even if my closet gets full. :) * Nonetheless, over the years, I do see a common theme in my paintings which is about not holding back from using bold colours. I think those influences probably have come from having lived overseas as well as cultural influences. And the change in subject matter is also a reflection of never feeling I fit in one box and being proud of making people think about how/why they decide where people fit in certain categories. * Haven't name this first painting yet but it was also inspired by my attempt rescue another badly done pour painting. After the peacock one, a lion decided to poke it's head. :)
