Hey! I'm Alexandra.
I'm a left-handed human who is a hug enthusiast and day dreamer living in Monterrey, Mexico. I have always had a special interest with patterns. It all started as a child, playing by myself with everything I could find. It could be bottle caps one day and fallen leaves the other. It had always be part of me. Those days creating objects, houses, and entire imaginary cities made out of useless things reappeared in college as an interest on design.
I studied Interior Design at CEDIM. Graduated in 2010.
I worked at my own interior design studio for the past 4.5 years, specializing on residential design. My projects, in a more architectural way, had textures and patterns as a key element in the space. An important part of my work as an interior designer has always been to integrate textures and prints into the spaces to make rich, vivid, and cozy places. Textures in walls, floors, upholstery, decor, and art. In 2017 I decided it was time to pursue my long time dream and become a full-time surface designer.
I always carry my notebook for a quick sketch if an idea pops into my mind or if I stumble upon an interesting motif. I always start in paper to later digitize the pattern in Illustrator and occasionally in Photoshop to give it more texture. Most of my patterns are inspired by nature, but I also enjoy exploring new topics. I play with abstract themes and repeats but also with figurative forms, or something in between.
Let's connect & create something together!
