Stella Alesi is a painter and long time Austin resident, who decided when she was 11 years old growing up in NJ that she would be an artist. After attending college and living all over the US, Stella settled in Austin with her husband Leon and together they have built a great life together that supports the creative freedom they desire. She spent a few decades working as a photographer but had the goal to quit by age 50 and commit to painting full time. I’ve known Stella for decades but it was great getting to sit down and really dig into her story. What an interesting life she has had thus far. If you know Stella you will love this interview and if you don’t there are so many gems of wisdom in her approach to life and art that I know you will get a lot out of it.
