I am a classically trained realist painter, living in New York City. For years, I focused on the traditional genres of still life, portraiture and landscapes, the majority of which was commissioned and sold privately.
In recent years, I have shifted to more imaginative, narrative work, inspired stylistically by artists such as Degas and Klimt, along with countless European masters from the Renaissance to the present day. Philosophically, I am influenced by animism, mythology of many traditions, and human ideals that have formulated over millenia.
Currently, Alger’s work is showing in group juried shows as she incorporates more imaginative figurative work into her repertoire. Among others, her work is owned by a variety of folk ranging from the American Arbitration Association, Naropa University, Fareed Zakaria, and Ashely Judd. Additionally, she was hired to paint portraits for the Warner Bros. movie, ‘Practical Magic’. She continues to accept commissions for portraiture and landscapes, including architecture.
