I'm Alexa Terry Hanson

I'm a 29 year old wife and mother to a firey red headed girl. We've recenltly 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 layed 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 BYU Salt Lake City where I had a major in Art, and when I returned home to California, I attended The Animated 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 is only begining.
