Alexandria Neonakis lives in Santa Monica California with her boyfriend and two cats. She was born in Nova Scotia Canada, an Eastern maritime Province where she spent most of her time outdoors in the beautiful coastal Atlantic and forest landscapes. Her main goal is to create images that have strong emotional impact. She pulls inspiration from childhood memories, nature, animated films and classic illustration and tries to combine character with lighting, strong color direction and staging to help sell a moment. She spends most of her free time painting, visiting museums and hiking the amazing parks of SoCal.
