Alexandra Sherwood Black Morrison graduated from the University of Guelph in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art, then started a Master's degree at Toronto's OCADU. However, after completing an internship at Etablissement d'en Face in Brussels, Belgium, she decided to apply to, was accepted and finished her Master's at Sint Lukas Institute of Fine Art in Brussels.
Following her Master's, she had independent and gallery shows across Belgium, and worked closely alongside auction houses and fellow artists Liliane Demeester and Patrick LePoutre of Art 111 Gallery. Her next step was to look for a location in the Flemish Ardennes to showcase her work and the work of other artists.
Sherwood Black Studios, founded by Alex and her partner, Bert Coussé, is a private gallery space for an emerging artist collective. Sherwood Black Studios is located in the picturesque region of Geraardsbergen, Belgium, close to Brussels in the village of Ophasselt. Formerly a cattle farm, a commune, a restaurant, and a private residence, it has recently been renovated into a gallery space with plans for a 5-acre sculpture garden.
