The work of Alexis Colbert is primarily about story telling. She thinks of herself not so much as an artist, but as a creator of characters and the worlds they live in. These little characters and their vignettes often capture the enchantment, magical thinking and fear one experiences in childhood. The aesthetic of her art brings to mind vintage toys, folk art and story book images (both adorable and creepy).
Colbert’s work has shown in galleries all over the United States, both in solo and group exhibits. Her puppets were featured in the movie “Plush” (director of “Twilight”, Catherine Hardwick). Tennessee Craft awarded her with two merit awards during the Tennessee Spring Craft Fairs in 2017 and 2018.
