‘Ello! - My name is Alexandra Murcott, my pseudonym is Moena Moxham. I am a creative trailblazer from Wellington, Aotearoa- New Zealand.
Curiosity leads me to working in different mediums, crossing different formats and being involved in all forms of artistic expression. My formal design background is in Industrial, Textile (Honours) and Graphic Design, but this education was only the paper and seals on a life that has seen me making, thinking and doing since I was knee high to a grasshopper.
My professional pursuits have seen me create, project manage, facilitate and work from conception through to production and presentation on enterprises in fine art, fashion, aviation, industrial manufacturing, graphic design, jewellery and textile design; as well as other prodigious avenues.
I undertake unusual and challenging projects that require multifaceted skills and fluid thought. I have created for established organisations to mavericks, a billionaire to non profits, worked solo on self made opportunities and all-up-to-the-elbows-multi-day-no-sleeper as a member of creative tornados.
People and passion are the cornerstones into what I invest. I am the maestra of constructing my dreams in real life and diligently accumulate expertise, relationships and resources towards ventures; some many years in orchestration. If anyone’s saying ‘it can’t be done’ I love proving that it very much can be.
Within my personal artwork my creative style is detailed, symbol and reference dense and the product of my psyche. I take pleasure in problem solving concepts and letting ideas evolve without being constrained to material or method. I globe-trot our Earthly body exploring new environments and situations in order to convey fresh, unique and dynamic perspectives. My creations are the products of my emotions, experiences and evolution. These are found in collections around the globe, and collected by patrons internationally.
I am passionate about adventure, mechanical engineering and the outdoors- especially when it involves motorbiking, snowboarding and flying.. and many other adrenaline filled pursuits! My love for movement and intellectual stimuation, alongside fizzing over music, cuisine, science and the galaxy, culture, and well basically life and all it has to offer in every shape and form, gifts me the fortune to meet incredible people and be involved in fantastic opportunities around the world. As of March 2018, I embarked on the best chapter yet as Mom to my beautiful daughter Adira Isla.
Above all, I love encouraging others to take life head on, and get up and out doing what they adore.
I welcome you to my website and invite you to explore my world through my art and blog.
