In the early 2000s Alexandra took redundancy, re-training as a reiki teacher and psychotherapist. She also became a member of the Wyvern Dowsing Society. in 2004 she was artist in residence at West Swindon Libary and has also exhibited regularly with Swindon Open Studios and the Old Town Art Trail. She is a member of the Swindon Experimental Drawing Hub, using and re-using natural products and found objects. She has also designed magazine and book covers for a life writing group. Her work 'harnesses the subconscious to allow shapes and forms to evolve with minimal manipulation'.
