About the Artist
Alex Billeter is a born and bred Floridian. Having grown up in the beautiful Sunshine State, Alex was always at the beach. Her grandmother would often take her and her siblings to the beach during school holiday time. Alex's memories of being by the water and collecting sea shells with her grandmother are a huge inspiration for her ocean inspired artwork. Alex even uses sea shells she collected with her grandmother as a child in her artwork today.
Alex moved to Australia after graduating college and lived in the tropical city of Darwin for ten years. During the time she lived in Australia, she traveled to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, inlcuding beaches in the Philippines, Fiji and the Whitsundays. The beach has always been the place she feels most connected and tries to replicate that connection to nature through her artwork.
Alex moved back to Florida in 2019 to be closer to her family and spend some time with her father who was in a bad car accident in 2018. Alex quickly settled back into life in Florida and met her now fiance while at a soccer tournament. Alex grew up playing soccer and started refereeing at a young age to make some pocket money and learn more about the game that she loves. During her ten years in Australia, Alex played, coached and refereed soccer.
Alex has always loved the game of soccer and continues to referee at the professional level since moving back to the US in 2019. She is currently a FIFA Referee and travels the world doing what she loves.
"Between creating ocean inspired artwork and refereeing at the highest level, I am living the life I have always wanted to live. Is it always easy? Absolutely not, but all the hard work has been absolutely worth it! I wake up everyday and look forward to what's ahead."
"Being able to create my art for others, that may experience the same emotional connection that I have to the beach, is the most fulfuling part of what I do. The ocean truly brings me a sense of calm and happiness, which I hope to share with others through my art."
