hi! i'm alex, a visual artist specializing in hand-drawn illustrations, hand lettering, and travel photography. my work is composed of playful forms and gestures that celebrate the quotidian across cultures.

i live to see the world, to make artwork that resonates, and to collaborate with passionate people. i've worked as a photo editor for afar magazine, mural coordinator at the municipality of lima, peru, english/spanish teacher & interpreter in asbury park, new jersey, and photographer for governor paterson in new york.

i'm currently in coastal new jersey taking commissions and creating handmade artwork with my husband, raul. for round-the-clock updates, follow on instagram at @alessandrasalamandra and @palographic
