Stiliana Alexieva is a British- Bulgarian artist and was tutored from an early age by her father Jordan Alexiev, an accomplished figurative artist, sculptor and actor. She studied printmaking, photography and visual arts in Sofia then mosaic art and design in London. Her art studies concluded at the Thames Valley University in 2003, since when she has painted professionally. Stiliana says of her work: “My art is inspired by the many changeable moods of the skies and weather of the British coast.” She also says that the experience of living through the fall of communism left her free of convention; this is perhaps manifest in her style of painting – highly textured mixed media on aluminium panels.
