Featuring Alexis McFate & Pixie Project this fall
Please mark your calendars for Saturday October 12th, 2019 from 7pm to 9pm for another fabulous Akemi Salon artist reception and fundraiser. We will have refreshments you may enjoy as you walk the salon to take in the art. There is also an opportunity to make a donation to The Pixie Project, a local organization that helps animals in need until they can find a forever home. Prints of the artwork will also be available for purchase, and a portion of the proceeds will be added to the donation for the animals. 20% of all Akemi Retail sales that weekend will also go towards the fundraiser.

Alexis is our artist and resident stylist. She is a visual artist and tattoo artist in training. As a visual artist, she is largely self-taught and began her journey at age 4, when she became inspired by her mothers drawing of a wolf. This body of work is part of a larger project, an Oracle Deck of spirit animals or totems. All pieces are done solely in pencil, or graphite. Each work is a blend of stencil realism and illustrative surrealism, utilizing both freehand and hand-drawn carbon transfer technique. These animals are from the Earth element section of the deck including the Elephant, Tiger, Lynx, Deer, Monkey, and Sloth. The work invites you to connect with the animal kingdom and yourself through the qualities of the animals. Alexis’ totem is the wolf.
