Alexis Cowan grew up on a cattle ranch in east Texas. Her parents moved around the South to various cattle ranches while she was young, and her mother says Alexis tried to develop her artistic style at a young age, as she would color on the walls of her home wherever she could. Alexis went on to attain an Associate degree in farm and ranch management and Bachelor’s degrees in both agriculture and art. She is currently managing her family’s cow-calf operation and when she is not outside, she is busy making art. She says that in a usual day she will put a layer of paint on a canvas, feed the cows, ride a horse, and put on another layer of paint. Being raised around livestock has given her a passion for the ranching way of life and she wants to share things that she has seen or experienced through her paintings. She loves colors and wants to use the sort of colors that will make people happy and can brighten up a room. She wants her paintings to have an artistic feel while still maintaining the integrity of the animal and capturing its unique personality.
Specializing in Western art–custom and original oils, acrylics and drawings, her original Western art features cattle, horses and an occasional cowboy.
