Majestic Sallier Oak
The artist wanted to create the most beautiful portrait that has ever been done of the Sallier Oak. This oak tree grows its twisty branches on the grounds of Imperial Calcasieu Museum in downtown Lake Charles, it is said to date back to 1645 at the latest, making it at least 375-years-old.
Limited Edition of 200 "Tree of Life" Mural
In 2013 the Lake Charles Tree of Life began as a seed. The side of Alexander Art Studio screamed a blank canvas. Candice wanted to create a mural in conjunction with other local artists and business owners as a project that impacted the entire community of Lake Charles. The leaves represented individuals, businesses and also memorialized family members and friends. After 9 years of its life, surviving multiple Hurricanes she still breathed life into the hearts of many people in SWLA and visitors across the country.
Toledo Bend Drawing
Toledo Bend is the largest man-made body of water in the South, ranking fifth in the United States for largest surface acreage. Candice Alexander's pen and ink drawing of the water's edge conveys a feeling of peace, and happiness in Louisiana's favorite spot to enjoy the summer's heat.
Cardinal with custom nameplate
The next edition to Candice Alexander's nature series is the Cardinal, a bird whose spiritual meaning is that of love. Cardinals are beloved birds for their beauty and bold colors, which offer a bright spot bringing a symbol of hope and joy. This limited edition of 200 prints was created with pen and ink in watercolors. She captures a cardinal reaching for a couple of Louisiana mulberries, perfect for any southern style home. Candice was inspired for this piece because of the many cardinals grazing her backyard. Each framed cardinal piece comes with a small glass vase holding a rose, dried Louisiana mulberry leaves, and a custom laser engraved nameplate shelf. Leave a comment in the notes as to what you would like the nameplate to say.
Each piece comes signed and numbered. We are offering two styles of local Louisiana handmade frames.
Candice wanted to capture a creole style homestead in Louisiana's country. A statue of an angel stands ahead of the plantation, its history covered in mystery and old scary tales.

The Lake Charles boardwalk stretches alongside the lakefront providing a pleasant atmosphere for walkers, bikers and local residents. The artist captures a beautiful Lake Charles sunset illuminating the cities skyline. The iconic CM Tower (Calcasieu Marine National Bank) is captured in this installment along other well known Lake Charles buildings. A glass engraving of the CM Tower will accompany each purchase of the Lake View Sunset.
