Today we’d like to introduce you to Alejandra Franco.
Hi Alejandra, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers.
Hello! My name is Alejandra, the founder of Woventimes.
I am a full-time interior designer, part-time fiber artist, dreamer, and coffee lover.
I first started weaving back in 2018, as a total experiment after I got a loom as a present.
After that, I have been exploring different mediums and techniques and launched Woventimes in 2020 as a means of self-expression and connection with others.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
My fiber art journey has been a great experience! Some ups and downs but overall, a really fun ride.
Finding a good balance between my fiber art, a full-time job, and life in general can be challenging at times.
There are some many ideas I want to try, but just need to be patient and accept my journey as it is.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I create fiber art pieces that reflect organic compositions, using, for the most part, natural fibers, fabrics, and ropes. Having a background in design allows me to find inspiration in many art forms, especially handmade pottery, colorful illustrations, Interior design, Architecture, and photography among others.
So, before we go, how can our readers or others connect or collaborate with you? How can they support you?
I am always open to work on commissions with clients, it is really fun to bring their ideas to life with my art. The way people can support me is by spreading the word. Sharing their experiences with others. Following my platforms.
