Alexandra is a California native, illustrator, designer, muralist and cat lover living in Oakland. She graduated with a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago before moving back to the golden state in 2014. Some of her clients include The New York Times, Pop Up Magazine and Food 52.
Alexandra’s art practice focuses on ways to celebrate representation through authentic experiences. By favoring accessible mediums including illustrated prints, and public art, her goal is to continue a dialogue about the importance of being seen in a world where many feel invisible. She recognizes representation is a step towards healing, but oftentimes, it is not nearly enough. Through monuments of visibility and depictions of herself and her community, she hopes that others can see her work as a call for social change.
