hi im alex shadow.png

I'm a calligrapher specializing in live events, signage, and murals. I believe in treating others with kindness, compassion, and generosity, and I use that philosophy to help you connect with your customers on a personal level.

Prior to owning Signs of Our Lives, I taught little humans for over eight years. I knew if I was going to leave teaching, I needed to figure out a way to connect my years of teaching experience and dedication to service with my creative passions. With this in mind, I found a way to leverage my skills to connect brands with their clients on a personal level and provide memorable personalized experiences that help my clients strengthen their brand and connection to their consumers.

When we work together, you're getting someone who's committed to providing the care and thoughtfulness that you and your clients deserve; building an engaged community around your brand, and ensuring people come back for more.

Many of the brands I work with are well-connected to their values and are committed to curating unique, distinctive, and memorable experiences for their clients through clean and well-designed signage, on-brand and impactful murals, and exciting experiential brand activations.

Those who choose to work with me are often those who believe in diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice. They live and breathe being of service to their community and their clients.

Alex  fully believes that being a business owner means using your platform to bring light to causes, speak out about issues, and amplify people's voices. In standing with the LGBTQ+ community, she joined Equality Florida in their mission to fight for equal rights for all, regardless of sex, gender, gender expression, or sexual orientation. She raised awareness and funds through creating "Say Gay: Protect Queer Lives" artwork on her window, and on stickers in which proceeds were donated to EF. Click above to see her artwork and message about this cause.

Alex was one of seventeen artists commissioned for PPPSW's "Bans Off Our Bodies" Series. This project showcased art that exemplified the importance of having the right to bodily autonomy for all people, showed unity against abortion bans, and spotlit the perspectives of artists throughout California.
