clay sculpture, glass, soft sculpture, & jewelry      |    Janice.alexander1995@gmail.com

Growing up in rural North Carolina, I developed a passion for nature and soon realized that I loved drawing and making things. When I went off to college, I fell in love with ceramics, and developed a fascination for glass also.


After getting my BFA in sculpture, I enjoyed many successful years in graphic design as a creative director. I worked with major corporate brands including Star Wars, the NFL, NASCAR, Miller, Coors, Budweiser, and others. When I retired, I was able to devote my time to sculpting, glasswork, and making things again.


My work involves various forms of celebration—whimsical characters like a dog and cat in a boat, remembrances of beloved pets through realistic urns, as well as sculpted heroes, such as Ghandi and powerful women. My focus is with themes of positive impact.


My husband and I spend most of our time in Southport where my studio is, but we also bounce back to our home in Bald Head to relax and recharge.
