Alexandra Masson) was born in Kent, England on December 2, 1960. She is British, resident in Venezuela since 1974.
She studied her primary education in Argentina and Trinidad. At an early age she started to develop her artistic interests linked to plastic arts with organic materials such as ants´ nests, creating a manner of clay with which she used to form various figures. Later on she took private drawing and painting lessons.
She studied high school in Caracas and started her university studies in Biology at Universidad Simón Bolívar. She switched to simultaneous interpreting, which she concluded at the extension of free studies at Universidad Central de Venezuela.
In 1988 she went to live in London for two years, where she broadened her plastic knowledge at the theoretical level by means of a personal method consisting of regular visits to museums, art galleries and art lectures, which she continued to do in several cities in Europe, Egypt and upon her return to Caracas.
Back in Venezuela she developed and consolidated her professional career which enabled her to have the freedom to take up once again her interest in the plastic arts.
In November 1995 she entered a painting for the Lagoven Art Salon and was awarded the Single Prize in the Category of Beginners or New Artists. She continued her Studies at the Cristobal Rojas school of arts and in May 2008 she attended a seminar entitled ¨Metaphor and Creativity¨, by philosopher Lizette Nava, where she met international artist Ricardo Benaím, who helped reactivate her interest in expressing herself. In October 2008 she took a workshop on Esthetics: Art and Society, at the Centro Cultural Chacao given by sociologist Gerardo Zavarce, in which she incorporated the sense of otherness and togetherness the artist has with society at large.
