A native of Chicago, Alex Bauwens (b. 1988) has been committed to art and animals for as long as she can remember. Her early artistic training began at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Palette and Chisel, and the American Academy of Art.

She later studied classical oil painting techniques and refined her anatomical studies under professors, David Jamieson and Melinda Whitmore at Vitruvian Fine Art Atelier. This four year intensive study was followed by an apprenticeship with world renowned oil painter, Scott Tallman Powers.

Now based in Scottsdale, Bauwens draws inspiration there from daily life, her own vivid imagination and the barns where she spends time with her beloved animals.

In 2018, Bauwens was awarded the Fine Art Connoisseur Award in the largest and most prestigious International Art Competition in the World; The Art Renewal Center Salon Competition. She has been published in The Art Renewal Center Book, Art Horse Equus, Images Magazine, Fine Art Connoisseur, and The International Artist’s Magazine.

Most recently her work was exhibited at the Salmagundi Club in New York City and Sotheby’s in LA. Bauwens’ work is currently on exhibit at the MEAM Museum in Barcelona, Spain.
