ALEJANDRA GOS - See Gallery Paintings below PSA, NPS
Alejandra Gos was born and raised in Argentina. Art has always had an important place in her life. She moved to the US at the age of 24 after graduating with a Computer Science and Math major. Since then she has been working as a full time engineer in the Seattle area. Introduced to pastels by her mom when she was a teenager, pastels became her preferred medium to work with.
Ale has attended workshops with Richard McKinley, Marla Baggetta, Janet Hamilton, Liz Haywood-Sullivan, Barbara Jaenicke and Desmond O'hagan. “Continuous education from artists I admire has impacted my work enormously and at a fast pace. I can see a lot of improvement and I am eager to learn more. Art is an endless learning path and that keeps me motivated”.
She is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America and the Northwest Pastel Society. She is also a member of the Pastel Society of the West Coast, Plein Air Washington Artists and the Pastel Society of Colorado.
Her pieces sell online and at art galleries in Edmonds and Anacortes. She is excited to continue building relationships with other artists and be part of this wonderful community. She loves the mountains and scenic views that surrounds us in Washington state. They are her constant source of inspiration.
