Born and raised in Chicago. Alex learned the value of storytelling from her grandparents after a childhood accident. This passion sparked with homemade picture books and has continued through to comics and animation and even the occasional gallery showing.
Alex has traveled from Chicago through Tokyo and Vancouver (BC) and now has made her way to Portland (by a 5am bus with 3 suitcases and a guinea pig, long story) to chase her love of creating and telling stories.
Between all of the work, she enjoys being a guinea pig mom, watching video essays, and trying to be a less than casual armchair psychologist and historian.
Her work has been featured in the 2016 Tokyo Collaboration project, the 2018/2019 Portland Monster Drawing Rally, and Rose City Comic Con’s 2019 Artist Alley. She also curated the 2019-2020 Portland Art Museum special exhibition Color Line.
You can keep up to date with her work on Instagram and Patreon, and her webcomic Mason on Tapastic and Line
