Our blog series, Beautiful People, features women who inspire us with both their outer and inner glow. Meet Alex Peacher, an artist from Brooklyn. Here's how she finds beauty in her everyday.
What motivates and inspires you?
So many things! I find a lot of inspiration in nature, especially when it comes to my paintings. There is nothing more joyful than seeing flowers pop out of the defrosted earth or a sunset that makes the sky look as if it's on fire. I have always had such amazing friends as well that are just as equally inspiring. When you're around that type of energy it can be intoxicating in the best way possible.
Favorite daily ritual?
Morning eggs! This has been something I've been doing since grade school. I'd wake up and make myself scrambled eggs and toast, every morning. It was a moment of quiet and clarity before the day would get started (I grew up in a house with 4 other siblings) and something I still partake in daily. If I don't eat eggs in the morning, something always feels off!
What is the best piece of advice you would give to your younger self?
Keep marching to the beat of your own drum because things will begin to make sense eventually and being the considered the "nice" friend is cool, not boring.
