Born into a grazing family in Queensland’s Inglewood district, she spent much of her early life in Latin America and the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean, with stints in Rhodesia, Jerusalem and New Zealand. She attended the Darling Downs Institute of Advanced Education in Toowoomba, and received a grant to study traditional Batik in Jogjakarta, Indonesia.

“The New England region has awakened and renewed my visual sense,” she says. “I have rediscovered the textures, the incredible vastness and the harshness (at times) of the ever-changing landscape”. 

“I’m enthralled as the light changes and dances across the grass plains, the woodlands, the wetlands, the fields, and the paddocks.

“The natural world inspires me no end, though I am also very interested in rediscovering the stories that abandoned sheds, building and gardens have left behind … the use of layers, the consequence of a line, of a mark.”

Alexandra Simone’s exhibition will run until early 2025 at The Makers Shed.
