Alex Hotchin Biography

After moving to the city and working in the architectural industry for more than a decade, her love of moving adventures and eventful moments saw an 18 month overland bicycle adventure imagined and undertaken.  This 17,000km ride from Scotland to Cambodia was life changing.  On return it was hard to put into words what she had experienced, so Alex set out to draw it.  This series of maps were exhibited at “Melbourne City Library” in 2016, and so began an adventure into the world of cartography.
