Alex Adamo is a mixed media maker, a wide eyed-globetrotter,
and a proud mother to Luna, an African pygmy hedgehog,
& Rufus, an English angora bunny.
Born and raised in Peekskill, New York,
Alex made her way to Massachusetts to pursue her love
of storytelling through photography.
Before diving head first into the small business world, she spent her days teaching afterschool in Cambridge and conducting art events for babies, kids, and adults at hip local venues.
Then the world changed, and she took her art instruction online!
Currently, she's running Alex Makes Art full-time,
hosting creative events for all ages with "public access" as her mission.
She also does home design projects, guest artist lectures, and is very open to being a
resident artist in a new neighborhood.
Through Alex Makes Art, she's creating an inclusive movement
that connections communities creatively.
