Biography

After receiving her bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from CSU
Long Beach, and taking a few years to explore careers in the
worlds of interior and industrial design, Alexandra came back
to her true love, ceramics.

Heavily inspired by the natural word and her love of the social
sciences, she joins the two to create vibrant abstract sculptures
that use biological morphology to convey the way humans
generate subtle nonverbal cues that appeal to the subconscious
mind.


As humans we are programmed to pick up on the subtleties of
the world around us. Whether these cues are conscious or
unconscious they undoubtedly affect the way we feel about
people or places without us even knowing why or how, but
what if these subtleties are contradicting each other? The
sculptures I create use simple organic forms and a vibrant color
palette to embody a beautiful contradiction, begging you to
stay and daring you to turn away.

The forces of connection and repulsion working simultaneously
unearth feelings of great intensity; longing, fear, ecstasy, and
confusion. At first glance my sculptures may look somewhat
bizarre in form but they request your attention with subtle
body gestures and flashy peacocking of colors in an eye-
catching display that satiates your brains’ pleasure centers.

My work uses biological form to illustrate the many
psychological and emotional contradictions of the human
experience, as well as the chaotic yet harmonious relationship
of the natural world. Each piece creates a dialogue of free
association, which invites the viewer to question their
emotional response to each object. My art challenges people
to adjust their scope and expand their imagination to the
possibility of the beautiful contradictions that exist all around
us.
