I don’t remember how I found out about Aleksandra (yeah first name basis, not really). I believe it was from a blog, that I saw her style and house I believe, and then I looked closely and I found her. Her vibes can be seen and felt. I feel like she is so calm and her work is amazing and it is something really different from what you’d expect it to be. She is a woodworker by way, and a very amazing one. (Have I mentioned she is also gorgeous? )

So recently I had the courage to email her and ask her a few questions. She kindly accepted. She is a true inspiration to me. So enjoy.

First of all, who is Aleksandra Zee ?

I am 30 years old, I live in Oakland CA with my pup Jack and I run my small business as a woodworker.

How did you start woodworking?

I fell in love with working with wood when I was working for a retail company creating displays. I fell madly in love with building and know that I had found my medium. I quit my full time job and became a waitress to build my business from scratch .

What inspires you the most in your life and your work?

What inspires me the most is human connection. Wether that be with our bodies and mind or each other. I am inspired by unifying human connection and that creation process.

What music are you listening to ?

Currently radiohead, and reverberation radio on spotify 🙂

What are your plans for the future?

My plans for the future is to continue to keep creating. To take on bigger projects, teach more, travel more, keep living life as fully as possible.

Is art/creativity going to save the world? (Just throwing this question out there!! )

I truly believe that creativity and vulnerability can change the world. Its really about being open with who you are, accepting who you are and allowing for the creative process to flow through you in whatever way that can manifest it
