“I love to create abstract paintings that are a profound joy to look at. My use of colour is intuitive with textures and shapes that emerge simply and spontaneously, creating a simple yet complex painting. I use layering techniques that create a depth that I really enjoy and make the painting colourful and full of light.”
Originally form Mexico City, Alejandra grew up immersed in a colourful and culturally rich country. Having an architect father, she developed an appreciation for art and design at an early age.
She began to paint as a girl, and in her teen years she attended a school of fine arts. After a degree in graphic design, she lived in China and New Zealand where she continued her studies in Motion Graphics and Visual Effects.
In 2009 Alejandra moved to Canada. She started an online business designing graphic art for home decor goods. She stopped painting and focused on digital art. In 2018 surrounded by nature and the ocean, she started painting again. She lives on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
Alejandra is an abstract expressionist artist. Her preferred medium is acrylic on canvas.
“Art has alway been a big part of my life. I can’t imagine my life without art. Painting is a very important form of expression for me. It is such a joy to mix colours and see them come to life on the canvas. I need this creative outlet to stay true to myself and feel complete."
