Alex Arciniega

Alex moved to Colombia to learn Spanish. It didn’t take much convincing to lure her to Cali, where our passions for art, teaching, and healthy eating made us great friends. Being from Reno-Tahoe, we have an affinity for natural beauty and living an active lifestyle, and we love to party.

Contact Alex for a commissioned art piece, a Paint & Sip event, or to show you around Cali.
