Alexia was born and raised in Texas and earned a BS in Human Biology and BA in Plan II Honors from the University of Texas at Austin. An intentioned future doctor, Alexia went through undergrad on the pre-med track until discovering the field of medical illustration from a peer. Excited for a chance to combine a love of science, art, and educating Alexia entered the BVIS class of 2019.
As a first year in the BVIS program, Alexia is especially enthusiastic for the anatomy cadaver lab and being introduced to the various forms of digital media, particularly animation and 3D modeling. She looks forward to future projects with the neighboring hospitals and clinics to produce patient-education pieces and potentially partner with surgeons to create surgical illustrations.
Upon graduation in 2019, Alexia hopes to either concentrate on patient-education or surgical illustration and animation.
