I'd like to think that my best friends would say I was:
Cheerful, friendly, approachable, intelligent, good humoured, sociable...
However they'd also probably say:
Scatterbrained, clumsy, pixie, gullible and occasionally daft. I like to hope these traits are endearing though!
So, I'm Alex, and I love art, life and the universe! I'm lucky enough spend my days in the company of amazing people; I help run and live above an artist studio collective and alternative venue, which means my life is full of inspiring, eclectic and darn interesting people. I love people, I love to meet them, talk with them and find out their stories, make new stories with them, and on my more introverted days I love nothing more than wandering the streets with my sketchbooks drawing the faces that catch my attention and creating mini life stories for them. When I'm not drawing people I illustrate pixies, daemons, dragons and other such creatures. I'm also developing a bit of a taste for street art, and want to find out more about this.
I love travel, but haven't had the chance until very recently to indulge that love - I know England like the back of my hand, and have travelled all over it from a young age...now I want to get to know the rest of the world like that!
When I'm not getting overexcited by art, people and mini adventures I love watching and listening to musicians doing their thing, eating good food from the far flung corners of the globe, writing, reading, learning, storytelling, yoga, dancing, attempting (currently failing) to juggle and walking in places where there are either lots of old buildings or lots of old trees.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
So many cool WOW moments have happened, but my most recent one was 4 days into a mini adventure, while travelling in York, UK, it was raining and the sun was shining, there were people rushing all around me and the minister bells were ringing, and for a split second I left all personal issues and worries behind and experienced the present moment properly for the first time - it was beautiful and made me want to travel and collect moments like that forever, from all across the globe.
Which is why I am here!
