Alexandra Cool is a sculptor and photographer.
She has been working for several years in Carrara (Italy), New York and Corsica. Nowadays, her home base is in Vollezele (Belgium) and the Auvergne (France).


Alexandra has an intimate rapport with nature. Her respect for natural materials and their inherent beauty is a great source of inspiration. She attempts to reveal what is invisible and silent. 
She likes to explore the relationship between nature and people. Sometimes her work is clearly socially engaged.
