Alexandrea Cantrell

Alexandrea (Alex) is a Nashville native who has always had a heart for art and design.  She graduated from Lipscomb University in May of 2014 with a degree in Art Therapy.  Throughout college she planned various events and got her hands messy in many different types of design.  Throughout college, Alex  spent some time interning at Anthropologie working on in-store design, worked designing several sets for shows, and took multiple classes that have aided her love and trained her eye for design.  Through all of these experiences she learned a lot about organization, multi-tasking, and she really fell in love with the entire design process.  Alex was married to a man named TJ in November of 2014 at a little place called Milky Way Farms.  She planned and designed her own wedding.  All decorations were either hand made or thrifted- and the result was an absolute dream.  It was within her wedding that she discovered her passion and eye for wedding and event design and planning.  Alex is always on the look out for antiques and thrift store treasures to which she brings new life.  She loves taking elements from nature and bringing them indoors.  She has experience and is trained in painting, drawing, wood-working, sewing, weaving and general 3-D design.  She lives in the heart of Nashville with her husband, her dogs, Opal and Rosie, and her cats, Moonie and Violet. Her and her husband are also in the process of adopting a baby from India.
