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 The Finnish Illustrators Association Kuvittajat (2018).
