Anastasia Alexandrin was born in Kharkov, Ukraine and came to the United States when she was only five years old.
Attending 13 different schools before graduating from high school one thing always remained the same: her passion for art.
At age 14, Alexandrin enrolled as a full-time art student at Barnstone Studios. She had her first one-woman show, the youngest person to have a one-person show in 30 years, and the very first one-person show by a female. Shortly after she graduated from high school, being awarded the National Scholastic Silver Award.
Alexandrin attended college at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. For two years, she battled constant health problems, and then moved back to Philadelphia to attend the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (PAFA).
Today, Alexandrin has a studio in Philadelphia, continuing to expand her artwork. Her drawings tell stories of women empowerment, aesthetic beauty, and inner self. She has traveled all over the world, living in residencies in countries like India and China. She continues to share her talent and spread her passion of art with shows around the country and private showings in her studio.
