She integrates poetry, sound, and performance in her practice as major contributors of influence throughout her research.
Alexis earned her Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting from Mississippi State University in 2012. In 2017, she received her Master of Fine Art from Texas Tech University with a concentration in Painting and a secondary emphasis in Transmedia.
