Alexandra's Art BECKon's You (& a Giveaway!)

There's a new artist on my radar, and I'm dying to score one of her pieces to beautify my walls. Born and raised in Austin, Alexandra Beck has been painting contemporary abstract art since 2003. Typically mixed media or acrylic on canvas, I especially love her use of gold leafing on top of cool colors. Each of her pieces is uniquely crafted, using several techniques such as hand application, gravity dripping, brush strokes, name it! Her vibrant art has already been featured in several trendy blogs (like Pink Memo & Korcula) and has been showcased in a variety of galleries and boutiques throughout the years. Currently a Dallas girl, Alexandra will be making her Houston debut this August.

Represented by Merritt Beck Media, you can visit Alexandra and her art at the "Houston Show Your heART" Expo on August 28-29th, 2010 at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

Can't wait until August? Perhaps you can take home some Alexandra Beck this week! That's right chic friends, it's time for yet another giveaway! This time it is for a set of greeting cards featuring the gorgeous painting of your choice.
