Personal style:
Alexandra creates landscapes, still lifes and portraits. She strives to produce meaningful work with a pinch of humor. She employs bold colors in her paintings to explore the joy and melancholy of simple things that often grow infinitely more complex as we age, while her illustrations remind us of the value of a line neatly drawn and the sometimes startling relevance of doodles.

Reading, cooking, and bragging about her dog. She is working on a children’s book based on their friendship called “Rufus and I.”
