Designer, Catherine Alexander, has always had a passion for merging the creative with the functional. A Washington DC native, Alexander came to New York as a student at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Following school, she spent years producing indie movies and television shows, but gradually realized that her love of design was too powerful to overlook. From there, her journey to find her niche began. She followed her heart into the world of fashion photography and, through prop styling, discovered an innate love for creating with her hands. After experimenting with a wide spectrum of mediums, Catherine found her true calling in metals and stones, and so, STANMORE was born.
