Alex Yuzwa is a GIS professional, hobby photographer, and self taught graphic artist currently residing in Winnipeg, MB. She attended the University of Manitoba from 2009 – 2014 and graduated with a Bachelor of Environmental Studies. Following this, she completed the Advanced Diploma program in GIS (Geographic Information Systems) Technology at Red River College. Since then, Alex has obtained work experience in the GIS field in consulting and non-profit environments, and has continued to do her freelance photography and design outside of this employment. From May 2017- May 2022, Alex opened her own Etsy shop under the name Paw + Leaf where she combined her love of geography with her love of design, and sold map art she created in her spare time.
For the past 18 years, I have dabbled in photography and graphic arts/design in my spare time. I have brought these skills to the table in my professional life, and have also started creating art to share with others. I enjoy combining my love for maps and geography with my enjoyment of creating digital art.
