Larry D. Alexander; Born May 30, 1953 in Dermott, Arkansas - is an American Artist and Author of Christian Literature.

In 2001 he wrote his first book entitled “African-American History at a Glance”, which he also illustrated himself with his “Pen & Ink” drawings of various African-American heroes. This book was used to help create a supplemental text, which was put together to improve the American History curriculum in the Irving, Texas high schools in 2002. In May of 2006, he released his second book, which focuses on his calling by GOD, to teach the Holy Scriptures. It is entitled “Sunday school lessons from the book of the Acts of the Apostles”, the first of a trilogy to be released over a 12-month period. It was followed in October of 2006 with the second book of the trilogy, “Sunday school lessons from the Gospel according to John Mark”, with the third book, “Sunday school lessons from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans” released, in July of 2007.

Additional Information

Alexander began drawing around the age of four. After graduating from Dermott High School in May of 1971, Alexander moved to Pine Bluff, Arkansas, where he studied Architectural Residential Design at Pines Vocational Technical School (now Southeast Arkansas Technical College). His work is primarily influenced by his life experiences, of growing up in the rural south in the fifties and sixties, and perhaps, even more so, by his life in Detroit, Michigan in the seventies and early eighties. Alexander has been living and working in Texas for the past 27 years. He is best known for his “pen and ink” drawings such as “Renetta”, “Girl Friends”, “Cow Pasture”, and “My Kids” (Copyright #VA-664-679/Library of Congress). In 1991 Alexander created his first lines of Greeting Cards in “Pen & Ink (The Expressions Line, The Save the Children Line, The Feelings Line, and The Professions Line). Some of his best-known paintings include, “The Jockey” (1997), “The Delta Series” (1998), “The Plum Picker” (1998), and the “Dermott Series” (1996). Six pieces from the Dermott Series are now a part of the permanent collection at the Southeast Arkansas Arts Center in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Today his work can be seen in many places, throughout the United States.
