About the Artist:

Alix White lives in Cohasset MA a seaside town also blessed with fields, woods and wetlands where her ancestors have been since 1868. Her sense of love and responsibility for the land come from the earth she gardens and the history of her people on this land. While her field of study and practice has always been art, she has always been comfortable with the ebb and flow of life in nature and humans. She has worked for 30 years providing care for the elderly both privately and within residential settings, praised for her gifts and skill in this work. She is deeply spiritual, a member of her church's choir and prayer community. She was educated at BU School of Fine Arts and California College of Arts and Crafts where she received her BFA. She is a founding member of Cohasset Open Studios and a gallery artist at the South Shore Art Center. She exhibits locally and internationally. You can see more of her work at her website:

Description of Work:

“For the last few years, I have been painting in the wetlands along the South Shore, drawn initially to them by their shapes and colors, and as time has gone on, to show their importance in protecting us from the rising oceans. This year, I went on a weekly wetland safari from Weymouth to Marshfield, stopping in one town a week. I am a lifelong plein air painter using acrylic on location for portability and environmental reasons, and oil in the studio.” – Alix White
