Alex Colombo is an experienced designer, illustrator and licensed artist who was born and grew up in beautiful Milan, Italy. She has a strong background in textile design and has professionally practiced interior design for over 10 years in both Europe and the United States.
She is most passionate about illustration, surface design and home decor – with her eclectic but simple patterns she likes to create colorful, whimsical and unique rhythms. She approaches design with a curious and experimental mind while she applies mixed techniques to bring her concepts to life. She enjoys drawing with pencils and pens, and hand painting with watercolors/acrylics.
Her creative work conveys warmth and is inspired by her upbringing around the alpine and mediterranean areas of Europe as well as her contact with different cultures and people she has met while traveling around the world.
She fuses natural, organic, primitive art with contemporary-folky designs; lots of dots are her signature style. Whether her work is created digitally or by hand, her colorful illustrations and drawings convey her love of life.
Alex loves to create a long-term collaborative relationship with her clients to make beautiful product lines that uplift people’s spirits and enhance their everyday lives. Her simple motto is: “Partnering to Make the World a Better Place through Art.”
She also hosts a popular blog called “The Moon from My Attic,” an art licensing chronicle where stories of artists and manufacturers from around the globe are featured along with their fantastic art and products.
She is passionately and tirelessly devoted to creating new, dynamic art that not only honors the past but also speaks to the changing times we live in. To this end, she is currently creating several inspirational art collections for products to present at the Surtex show in 2013.
