“As Group Art Director for Advanstar Communications, Alexandra was my “go to” illustrator for several of the clinical B2B journals I art directed. Time and time again, Alex created innovative cover illustrations, on time, on budget and exceeded expectations on a consistent basis. She pitched concepts that were unique and out-of-the-box, when we were fresh out of ideas on subjects that were well traveled. Alex also provided polished spot art developed from pencil sketches submitted by medical personnel. I thoroughly enjoyed the creative exchange with Alex on every project.”
