Background Experience:  Alexandra “Xan” Underhill got her real start in performance art right after she graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art & received her BFA in Fiber Arts.  She continued on to design & create her own jewelry line, work in sculpture, installation, wearable art, costuming & set design while at the same time she got involved in the performing arts. 

Loves & Interests:  Xan has a very contagious enthusiasm for life & everything in it!  As a raw food chef, she hopes to inspire people’s love for healthy eating & a better consciousness about our symbiotic relationship to Earth.  Her love for performance & costuming inspires others to express themselves & be involved in projects that make statements.  Xan has traveled & lived throughout the world.  These experiences are from which she consciously integrates foreign rhythms, textures & forms in all of her creative expression.
