Alexandra Milton was born in Paris and brought up on a diet of beautifully illustrated children's books. After living in Germany, she studied art and English in Paris before moving to England, where she worked as a primary school teacher before becoming a full-time artist. Alexandra draws inspiration from her father, Wolfram Aichele, and grandfather, Erwin Aichele, both distinguished German abstract artists. Alexandra lives in London with her husband – author Giles Milton – and their three daughters.
