Junette Alexander – a wish to take fine arts across the region

Entornointeligente.com /

Junette Alexander’s life is guided by her pursuit of becoming a visual arts teacher. Alexander, who is from St Lucia, travelled to Jamaica from her hometown of Morne Dudon to study fine arts because teacher training in this area is not offered in St Lucia.

Alexander said that as a young girl growing up, she had always found solace in art and teaching.

«I often joke and say I have been teaching from the womb,» she said in a interview with Arts and Education .

Francis Junior, her father, a professional chef with over 35 years of experience, would carve fruits and use design principles in his presentation of his meals.

Jirnell, her older brother, had also shown promise as an artist as he would produce drawings that Alexander said she was in love with.
