  Alexandra is a home renovation specialist and interior designer with the Los Angeles based company she started with her husband in 2010 called ModOp Design.  The focus of her work is modernizing distressed properties in a way that respects and restores the original character of each property.  Alexandra oversees the interior and exterior design of each property and stages them with a mix of unique furniture, custom made accessories and original artwork.  She creates stylish and comfortable living spaces to showcase each home’s best qualities.   Her renovations and staging work has led to interior design and home renovation consulting.  


Alexandra started her career as a textile designer.  Her Los Angeles-based textile design company, Unico Studio, focused on the creation of one-of-a-kind prints for the home décor and fashion industry. Her designs were acquired by high-end fabric manufacturers, home décor companies and clothing designers, including Anthropologie, Trina Turk, Pottery Barn, Target, BCBG, Rozae Nichols, Vince Clothing, Guess, Bebe, Quicksilver, Tadashi, Laundry, St. John and many others.

Alexandra graduated with a B.A. in Studio Art from University of California, Santa Cruz.  She attended L’Accademia Delle Belle Arti in Bologna, Italy where she began painting on fabric, which has become her signature medium.  Her original artwork and textile designs are created on silk with water-based  paint. 


Alexandra is influenced by her hometown Los Angeles and her artistic roots.  As the granddaughter of Welton Becket, the architect who designed some of L.A.’s most famous landmarks (Capitol Records, the Music Center, the Beverly Hilton, the Pan Pacific Auditorium, etc.) she is influenced by the geometry of modernism, the sharp angles and  graceful curvature.  She is also influenced by the lush and varied landscape of Los Angeles.  She is dedicated to recreating the colors, patterns and forms that inspire her in a personal and unique way.
