Behind the Brand
When I was born I was given the name Alexandra Shartle. My father, jokingly, began to call me "Czarina" after the final empress of Russia: Czarina Alexandra Romanov. Eventually, the name stuck. l legally changed my name when I was fifteen to Czarina, and that is who I have been ever since.
A little about me...
I am a graphic designer and art director. I grew up in the small town of Fairhaven, Massachusetts and was raised by a creative family. I’ve been making things since I came out of the womb, but I didn’t start my journey as a graphic designer until I began attending Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2014. This May, I graduated with Academic Honors and began my work as a Junior Art Director the following month. Aside from design, I have a passion for dance, theatre, illustration, creative nonfiction writing, plant-based cooking, and saving the planet.
