Alexandra Le Rossignol
Alexandra is an artist living above the White Cliffs at St Margarets at Cliffe. For many years she successfully made stained glass windows for churches in the Canterbury Diocese and beyond. However, she has now moved into a new direction having recently finished a three year course on iconography led by Iconographer Peter Murphy.
Alexandra has always considered life as a pilgrimage and is inspired spiritually by edgelands - areas in the landscape where the boundary between heaven and earth seems very thin. Sacred spaces can be in surprising places and the people we meet on the way. For Alex, her greatest joy has been the shared journey and fellowship with other pilgrims. Her biggest challenge has been believing that she can physically do the walk. The biggest eye-opener, as an artist, has been the work of Adam Kossowski at Aylesford Priory.
Alexandra hopes to respond to the pilgrimage through producing a series of icons inspired by the Saints in the landscape and a sketchbook of the journey.
