The University of Tampa Class of ‘23
Honors Program | College of Arts and Letters
Alexa Gardner often goes by Lexi and is from Cranston, Rhode Island where she, at a very young age, began practicing painting, drawing, photography, and more at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) summer camps. She is now a junior year student at the University of Tampa studying to achieve a Bachelor of Arts degree in Design with double minors in Advertising and Public Relations. She has always enjoyed visual art, whether it be drawing, painting, or taking photos, and found her interest in digital art in middle school and has only been falling deeper in love with it since. As a girl who spends most of her spare time with her loved ones at home or outside taking hikes through the woods and along ocean cliffs with friends, family and nature are two themes that show up in many of her artistic pieces. Lexi believes mindfulness is a key to success and is always trying to make new connections.
