Alesol is a self-taught, Brazilian born, German artist.

She is a keen observer of her surroundings and receives inspiration from each country she visits. Viewers quickly note that blue dominates her colour palette. Alesol explains that she finds the colour calming; it symbolizes water, the sky, and infinity.  

As noted in the above quote, memories also influence her work, specifically that of her family.
