I'm Alexandra, welcome! I'm a romanian illustrator and artist living and working in Helsinki, Finland.
I have studied at the National University of Arts in Bucharest where I have completed both my Bachelor's and my Master's degree in Graphic Arts. As there was no special illustration section at the University I didn't really consider it, I saw myself as an artist, so after the studies I have started painting, had an exhibition, it went well but I soon realised that I will need to find some other means of support. I did work a few simple jobs that had nothing to do with my degree and I slowly turned to illustration.
I've been doing illustrations for about 6 years now, mostly freelancing; during this time I have worked with clients all over the world. I want to continue to explore and grow in this field.
Most of my work is in traditional media and I use some digital tools sometimes for the creation of it, however there is always a traditional component involved in all my work. As you may have seen I like to explore different techniques.
I am a member of The Romanian Illustrators Club since 2014 and also The Finnish Illustrators Association Kuvittajat (2018).
You can get in touch with me via the contact form or through Facebook.
Thank you for being here!
