About Alexa

Alexa graduated from Elon University with a BA in Digital Art. After working as a corporate graphic designer for a time, she paved her own path and founded Sage Paper Co., a paper goods design studio specializing in watercolor + brush lettering for weddings, small business branding, and prints + stationery.  She is thrilled to combine the art of clean design and playful brush lettering to bring the vision behind this neighborhood studio to life. She is the visual brand ambassador for Yoga Off East and creates all print and web design for the studio.

Born down the road in Chapel Hill, and raised on a farm outside Nashville, Tennessee, nothing speaks to her heart quite like southern hospitality. With this hospitality comes deep love, intentionality and grace. She is a firm believer that the proper combination of these three things—both in her lifestyle and her designs—enriches the soul and fosters joy. Her hope is that you use her designs to live more intentionally, love more fearlessly and extend grace in all circumstances. 


Wisdom, love, and grace are stronger when shared.
