Alexandria Robinson-Sutherland


Portrait 'Alexandria RS' for website

I built my success through various community projects in arts and education, over-arched with the value of well being, as this is where my passions lay. Comfortable with a degree of risk I work on evolving new, ‘U-Neek’ approaches to further develop creative people. Approaches that can lead creative people to life enhancing opportunities. I believe in the importance of everyone having access to art and I believe in a fair society in which creative people can realise their full potential. Together we CAN achieve this.

PURPOSE.

It’s my purpose to support creative minds to nurture exciting ideas and to make more informed choices.

PASSION.

I want to improve access and participation in the arts. I’m passionate about elevating creatives and communities, through education and learning through the arts. Showing how art changes lives.

TALENT.

It’s important for creative people to have more informed choices. Together we can make a difference utilising your talents, enhancing relationships between communities, businesses and you, the Artist.

CO-CREATE.

It’s necessary for creative people to have a ‘U-Neek’ platform to flourish and thrive. I understand that creatives do things differently and together we can co-create around your goals and talents. Building a society with a greater understanding and appreciation of art.

"Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn't work hard."

The Artist not to be Judged by her Cover

Alexandria Robinson-Sutherland: The artist not to be judged by her cover

If someone had asked me to describe how I picture the modern artist, I’d assume moody and edgy. Understated in charm and appearance; perhaps even slightly egocentric on some level. An enigma who is intently serious about their artistry. The type to shrink from a crowded room and who spends more of their time alone than not, but there again, I don’t spend much time with visual artists and there are always exceptions to the rule.
