Alex Blakey

Alex is a visual artist working for Cartweel Arts' Art for Wellbeing practitioner team. 
Her work combines the beautiful natural qualities of fused and cast glass with stone, concrete, wood, photography, paint and steel to create bespoke works of art to suit their environment. Alex takes her inspiration from memory, people and place. She often choose to focus on the human connection to both place and each other considering issues such as memory, connectivity, history and the human mind.
Alex enjoys working on a wide variety of creative project from creating her own work for galleries and exhibitions to working on numerous public art and community projects. She has always had a passion for art and following her degree in Three Dimensional Design at MMU she has been determined to share that passion with those around her. 
Alex is passionate about using art to make a difference to people’s lives whether it be encouraging people to take up new skills, offering a chance for self-expression, making a statement, or just bringing people together.
