Dragon's Haven Art Works

Jay & Ingrid Alexander
Lawrence, Kansas

Originally from Nicaragua, a small country in Central America full of lakes, volcanoes and tropical rainforests. I have been imbued with its great artistic tradition. I try to visualize a tropical paradise and its colors, shapes and sounds.
My interest in other cultures, ancient and indigenous to the American and African continents, has intrigued me since I was a child. Some of the colors, patterns and motifs in my paintings come from the textiles, ceramics and mural arts of these cultures.
I paint with oils, acrylics, watercolors, and mixed media on everything from canvas to barns. The combination of these mediums gives me a wide range of flexibility to express ideas and textures.
