Alexis Clements is a native Missourian and has never known life without a cat, but she now also has a dog in addition to a cat. Her work investigates the relationship where words and images converge, where memories become mythologies, and how environments contribute to personal narratives that result in intimate books. 

Alexis likes:

  • napping in cars
  • communing with trees
  • novels with sad endings
  • all things quiet
  • general revelations
