Personal Statement

I like to work with a wide variety of mediums and therefore my portfolio includes collection of diverse art. I love to explore and improvise with different techniques and material to create truly unique and unusual artwork.

The most of my photographs and artwork is inspired by travels. Explosive abstract paintings, monotypes, colorful digital art and contemporary mixed media collages are just some of the styles you will uncover when you delve into the world of my fine art.

Bio

Hailing from Boston, MA, Alexandra Jordankova is a visual artist and graphic designer with a particular fondness for abstract landscapes and immersive textures. Her work is eclectic and diverse, yet her will to experiment with different materials and creative process acts as a common thread-line, as the instinct and emotional eloquence of her artworks is often the forefront.

Born in former Czechoslovakia, Alexandra has always been fascinated by art, a passion that led her from early watercolors and tempera paintings to formal education and training in fine arts. In spite of a momentary lapse (Alexandra was focusing on getting her PhD in psychology), art took back the main spot in her life.

Alexandra is now a SMFA certified Graphic Designer, professional artists and media creator, with a particular focus on abstractionism and photography. Link to my Photography website.
