Alex's art is unique and conveys joy and warmth; it is inspired by her upbringing around the alpine and Mediterranean areas of Europe as well as her contact with different cultures and people she has met while traveling around the world - her whimsical artwork has a unique twist of American and European flair artfully blending the best of both worlds. 

"Hand-painting is not perfect and the imperfection adds to its appeal", Alex says. In fact she likes to fuse natural, organic and primitive patterns to create contemporary decorative designs and illustrations; lots of dots are her signature style. Whether her work is created digitally or by hand, her colorful illustrations and drawings convey her love of life.
