Background Experience:  Alexandra “Xan” got her real start in performance art right after she graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art & received her BFA in Fiber Arts.  She continued on to design & create her own jewelry line, work in sculpture, installation, wearable art, costuming & set design while at the same time she got involved in the performing arts. 

Resume:  Since Xan’s career began in 1993, her resume is rather lush.  To name a few highlights: 

~ Visual Arts Director, Principal Costume Designer & Stilte-Walker for SAFMOD in Cleveland, Ohio.

~ Resident Costumer Designer at ISH Dance Company in Amsterdam.

~ Costuming & Set Design for feature films “Hero Tomorrow” & “Christmas at Maxwells” 

~ Costuming for Cirque Du Soleil, Philobus & the San Francisco School of Circus Arts

Loves & Interests:  Xan has a very contagious enthusiasm for life & everything in it!  As a raw food chef who recently received her degree in raw food prep, she hopes to inspire people’s love for healthy eating & a better consciousness about our symbiotic relationship to Earth.  Her love for performance & costuming inspires others to express themselves & be involved in projects that make statements.  Her Tie Line (skirts, purses & skirts made out of re-purposed men’s ties) has been keeping her in hot demand lately.  Xan has traveled & lived throughout the world.  These experiences are from which she consciously integrates foreign rhythms, textures & forms in all of her creative expression.
