Alexandra Manderfeld

Alex has always been compelled by art in its many forms and applications. She grew up in the small city of Elkhart, IN, pursuing a Bachelor’s degree at the Indiana University of South Bend. She focused mainly on 2-D drawing and oil painting until moving to Oklahoma City in 2015 and discovering the LGS “Game Headquarters.” It was there that she was exposed to the world of RPG gaming, board games (other than Monopoly and Life), and most importantly, the fine art of miniature painting.

Painting miniatures has become her truest artistic passion. Fascinated with working at a minuscule scale, she enjoys the challenge of free-handing intricate detail such as hair, jewels, and fabric. This contribution to the physical aspect of tabletop gaming inspires her to perfect her skill by pushing boundaries, experimenting with new effects, and ultimately, making the game as exciting and immersive as possible. 

Some of Alex’s miniature painting accomplishments include:
