Hi! i'm Alex(andra), a visual artist specializing in hand-drawn illustrations, lettering, and travel photography. My work is composed of playful forms and gestures that celebrate the quotidian across cultures.

I live to travel, to make artwork that resonates, and to collaborate with passionate people. In the past, I've worked as a photo editor for Afar magazine in San Francisco, mural coordinator at the Municipality of Lima, English/Spanish teacher & interpreter in Asbury Park, and photographer for Governor Paterson in New York.

I've since planted myself in Miami Shores, where I'm taking commissions and launching an artisan shop, Mima Market, with my husband, Raul. For round-the-clock updates, follow on Instagram at @palographic and @alessandrasalamandra.
