Hi, 

My name is Alexa Hanson. I'm a 30 year old wife and mother. I've recently relocated from Orange County, California to beautiful Austin, Texas. I've had a dream to be an artist working in the world of animation since I was in middle school where I first laid my eyes on a copy of the book, The Art of Animation. Since then I have done everything I could to achieve that dream. I attended Utah Valley University and BYU where I had a major in Art. When I returned home to California I attended The Animation Academy in the heart of Burbank. Since then I have worked with many companies and clients and created a career for myself. I've worked very hard to get to where I am today and the adventure has only just begun.

HERE ARE A COUPLE OF COMPANIES I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE TO WORK FOR.
