Model and artist Sharon Alexis learned how to draw in just four months. Younger, she initially wanted to become a fashion designer, but after discovering the very distinctive feeling that painting brought her, it became a passion. Growing up in Reims, a city to the northeast of Paris, she never thought she’d end up working with some of the biggest brands from the age of 18; but her quickly growing career in modeling was just the beginning. She soon gathered a committed audience thanks to her instinctive oil paintings, open conversations and thoughtful commentary on the anti-racism movement in France. The ambition to strengthen her skills and maybe one day, make a living out of her art is something she hopes she’ll be able to accomplish. Willing to make her African heritage shine through her work, she wants to get closer to her roots and is slowly building her identity as an artist, as an activist, but also as a woman. Sharon made it very clear that honoring her community and bringing to light significant issues is important to her. When it comes to fashion, she partnered with Dior and Louis Vuitton multiple times, getting the attention of a brand-new audience. More and more focused on her style, she likes pieces with “Simple but with beautiful details” and is rather fascinated by an “element of surprise”. She feels more at ease in neutral colors and is still looking for a defined style she can call her own.
