Alexandra was born in Miami, Florida, but has spent most of her life in the Greater New Haven area. You may recognize her from the Fake Babies “Talk Like My Baby” music video or around town at New Haven’s hippest spots. However, Alexandra is certainly much more than a New Haven face. She studied English at Albertus Magnus College and enjoys reading, writing poetry and making collages that once hung on the walls of Koffee on Audubon. When discussing her inspiration for collage making she says, “My mom was always working on art projects as a child and I was naturally always envious of her creations. I had a book of paper dolls I’d play with and wonder what they’d look like wearing an orange or an apple rather than the silly paper dress options they came with. I guess that ‘what if’ frame of thought is helpful for collaging.” Despite only working on collages for the last 2 years, she has also dabbled with pen and ink, pastels, graphite, painting, and making art from salvaged materials and discarded items. See Alexandra’s recent work at the Once In A Lifetime exhibition opening February 6, 2014 at Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery at the Arts Council of Greater New Haven.
