Alexandra Tyng, of Narberth, Pennsylvania, has received several distinguished awards from the Portrait Society of America. She is also known for her landscapes, many of which are inspired by scenic midcoastal Maine, where she paints en plein air in the summer months. “Being able to work in different genres keeps things fresh. You can jump-start your learning by trying a new direction or by approaching something in an unexpected manner,” she says. The self-taught artist earned her bachelor of arts degree from Harvard University and a master’s degree in education from the University of Pennsylvania before devoting herself to becoming a full-time artist. She is represented by the Fischbach Gallery in New York City, the Gross McCleaf Gallery in Philadelphia, and the Watson Gallery in Stonington, Maine.
