Over the Summer holidays my site has been undergoing a sneaky facelift.
Nothing radical, just a little lift here, a tuck over there, plus some rather lovely fillers. You may not notice it at first glance, there might be something slightly different, something you just can’t put your finger on…a little something extra, glossy and gorgeous. But she is back to take 2015 by storm, shinier, sleeker and more fabulous than ever!
I have been working madly with my oh-so fantastic graphic ladies Anita and Kate from Stream Art Design to get my site up-to-the-minute perfect. They are amazing for anyone needing graphic assistance, I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are so wonderfully good at what they do, not to mention extremely patient as they hold my hand, walking me step-by-step through every dark, scary corner of the site, shining light, knowledge and understanding and banishing those IT demons far far away!
So, pour yourself a cuppa and slice off a rather large, indulgent piece of chocolate cake (you deserve it), if you will be so kind as to indulge me, I would be delighted to give a personal tour of the revamped Alexandra Nea site.
Starting at ABOUT you will find a little history giving background to the journey that is my working career.
If you scroll on down you will find yourself at WORK. Here we have a selection of albums showcasing my favourite personal illustrations created over the years. Do you have a particular interest in my illustrated FOOD? or perhaps you are getting married and are keen to view the BRIDAL inspired pieces? Maybe you have a few little ones running around and are looking for nursery inspiration with my ENFANT series or FASHION is your passion and you need a fix. You can select and slim down my works to just browse what interests you, click on an album and it will open into a slideshow of works.
Back to the main menu and onto CLIENTS. Here I showcase my latest and favourite works from my fabulous clientelle. A mixture of private and commercial commissions are on display, peppered with a selection of feedback I have received. I love working on such a diverse variety of projects, receiving such lovely, positive feedback after a job is completed makes the late nights worth it! To have a close-up squiz of a piece that takes your fancy, click on the image and it will open into a slideshow.
Across to PRESS and here we have a selection of albums displaying my work that has been featured in various media outlets, print and online. Again, click on the cover image and it will take you through to a slideshow to view each feature in full detail.
