Artistic Harmony

Aleex Conner is an Impressionist whose oil paintings capture vibrations of color and movement with textured brush strokes, rich hues, and dancing lights. Says Aleex, “I want to awaken the inner feelings and emotions of those viewing my paintings. I strive to bring life and energy to my images like musical notes dancing across the canvas.”  To view her paintings, please scroll to the top of this page and click on the Artistic Harmony tab.

Aleex has had numerous solo art shows, and her original oils have been exhibited abroad in Giverny, France (home of Monet’s Gardens), Tuscany, and Northern Italy.  Her work is in private collections throughout the United States and Europe and can be found locally in Knoxville at the Plum Gallery (Kingston Pike/Bearden Area), Fountain City Art Center (Hotel Avenue off Broadway), and Mulligan’s Restaurant (Ebenezer Road).

With art and culture an integral part of her life, Aleex developed a deep appreciation for creativity at a young age.  Following the footsteps of the early American Impressionists, she enjoys traveling to Europe to paint many of the scenes that have inspired previous American artists such as Mary Cassatt.  She also enjoys painting “en plein air” in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee.

For the past 10 years, Aleex has been studying with Impressionist, Dick Ensing, who resides in Sevierville (www.dickensingartist.com). Nationally and internationally known, Dick is a 5th generation grandson of the legendary Dutch painter Adrian VanDer Werf (1659 – 1722).  Says Aleex, “There are just a few people you meet that make a lasting impression on your life, and Dick Ensing is one of those people to me.  I have learned so much about painting from him, and he has made a substantial impact in teaching me how to view color, shapes, and values.”
