Alecia Vera Buckles is a working artist based out of Chattanooga, TN. She graduated with a BFA from Shorter University in Rome, GA in 2014. Her work is influenced by a childlike view of the world in which she brings to life throughout her bold color palette. The backbone of Alecia’s work begins with a variation of texture and line work. She taps into her inner childlike wonder by harvesting and recycling paint chips anywhere she can. Old retired palettes, tissue paper, paper towels and even urban exploring have all provided opportunity for Alecia to create with what she finds. Her subject matter is never limited due to the constant fascination of her surroundings. Her persistent experimentaton of painting, ceramic sculpture, and mixed media has only leveraged her into a more diverse art market. Check out her work and stay tuned for more!
