About the Artist
Alexandra Keely is a visual artist based in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Keely holds a Bachelor of Applied Arts, a joint degree from the University of New Brunswick and the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design. It was while studying at NBCCD that she discovered her passion for the fibre arts, prompting her to continue her studies at the college, where she obtained a Graduate Studies Diploma, Fibre Arts division, in 2012.
Although Keely creates an array of wearable and decorative fibre art pieces, using an assortment of fibers and processes, her true passion is creating beautiful one-of-a-kind art pieces. Her predominant focus as an artist is addressing social and political issues, including environmental degradation, the human condition, inequality and current events, in ways that will inspire her audience to think. Her secondary focus, which she is equally passionate about is teaching- sharing her knowledge, and assisting others to find their love for fibers.
