About the Artist

Alexandra is an artist, interior architect and designer.
She was born in Argentina and moved to Washington, D.C. in 2002. Alexandra holds a master’s in interior architecture and Design from University of Salamanca, Spain.
She painted since early age and later continued her art studies at Glen Echo and Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C.
She participated in many art exhibitions locally and abroad, and her work is part of private collections in different countries: England, Scotland, Spain, Andorra, Argentina, Mexico, Uruguay, Germany and in the collection of Museo of the Americas (Americas Museum). Her works hang in offices at the White House, the International Monetary Fund, JGB Smith, Douglas Development, ARUP and many others private collections.

Alexandra explores the impact that colors and shapes produce in our lives, how they can change our mood, affect our psychology, and even produce a physical reaction. Alexandra’s goal is to give an optimistic view of the future with attitude, audacity and strength. Alexandra wants to add color to our days in a symbolic and metaphorical sense; she reaches out to the viewer to connect trough color and passion.“My artworks are like life itself, full of texture, light, shadows, scratches and asymmetries, never perfect but always passionate. I like when my work reflects the passage of time, the patina we collect throughout life. But I also like it when it is bold and bright, signaling the beginning of something exciting.
I use all sorts of different materials: oils, paint, wax, crayons, wood, paper, and many more. Experimenting with different materials allows me to explore without feeling imprisoned by a specific medium or a technique. Most of my work is abstract because emotions cannot be condensed into a single image or word. I think this gives the observer more freedom to feel, reminisce, and react to the work. If my paintings evoke primordial feelings within people and connects with them, then I will have completed my job.”
