Jody Alexander is a mixed media artist who lives and works in Santa Cruz and Penn Valley, California. She combines textiles, paper, found items and imagery to create books, objects, wall pieces, garments, and installations. Her current work is inspired by the art of repair, reuse, and imagery and stories encountered in her travels and everyday.
She is the 2015 recipient of the Rydell Visual Arts Fellowship, and in 2019 she was an artist in residence at the Santa Cruz Resource Recovery Facility SCRAP program. Her work appears in a number of publications including Masters: Book Arts: Major Works by Leading Artists, 500 Handmade Books (Vol. I & II), and 1000 Artists’ Books: Exploring the Book as Art.
