Alexandria Michaels is known for her Greek and Roman Style torsos and exotic faces in marble, alabaster and unique wood burls. She has been sculpting for 13 years in those mediums.

Michaels states "Wood is very free forming. I must let the wood show me what it wants to be and have the courage to go along with it. Wood is where I strive for inspiration. It's a collaborative effort with nature; it's never perfect yet absolutely beautiful. I try to leave a large part of each piece in its natural state. I believe allowing nature to contribute makes a tranquil, peaceful work of art. Stone on the other hand is very mathematical, demanding and slow. It's where I strive for perfection and realism. It requires a lot of vision and persistence to take something that starts as a square block and give it motion. It's the complete opposite of wood. I find balance in sculpting both mediums."
