Alexandria graduated from Silvermine College of Art, studying painting under Richard Lytle. She went on to become an Art Director for Wright Investors' Service.

A member of the Carriage Barn Art Center and Westport Art Center, she resides in Westport, CT with her husband Peter. " When I paint time becomes another dimension where color and drawing co-exist - when I take a photo, light and composition enables me to see the abstract. I explore both - with the aim for a cross-over development - so my paintings verge on the abstract and my photos become painterly."

She resides in Westport, CT with her husband Ian and is a member of the Carriage Barn Art Center and the Stamford Photography Club.
