Originally from California, artist and designer Alex Sanso has been a Bainbridge Islander since 2007. Alex has been a creative professional her entire adult life, as a graphic designer, illustrator, and artist for world-renowned companies such as Disney Theme Parks in Orlando, Florida (which included a life-altering expatriate detour in Tokyo, Japan for almost two years), and Hallmark Cards in Kansas City, Missouri. Since bringing her family back to the West Coast and making Bainbridge Island her home, Alex has been the sole proprietor of her own business, Alex Sanso Creative, creating outstanding art and design for clients from around the world and from right here on Bainbridge.
From early in her career, Alex found a passion for creating art that helps people celebrate and remember the travels, adventures, and special events in their lives—whether a long-planned family vacation to Walt Disney World, or an adventure through a US National Park. She’s brought that passion home to her own backyard and now shares the special qualities of Bainbridge Island through her art and collectibles. Her art gifts are enjoyed and collected by visiting travelers and locals alike.
