My name is Alexandra, or Sasha (the short form). I'm a lecturer at the computer science faculty of the university. My fields of specialization are algorithms of image processing, image recognition and computer graphics, in which I see a kind of a compromise between mathematics and graphic arts.
In my free time I like to draw. Becoming an artist has been my dream since childhood and I still don't give it up. I find inspiration in picture galleries and never miss a chance to attend an exhibition when visiting another city.
I also love books, music, history and learning languages. Besides Russian and English, please feel free to write to me in French, Czech, German or Portuguese. I'd be happy to practice reading your card!
Most of all I'd be glad to receive the following cards:
— cards that somehow convey the "spirit" and mood of the place you live in: sightseeings, city streets, nature, history, culture, daily life, dances, traditions, markets etc. I'm eager for discovering new places!
— visual arts of your country (perhaps your favorite artist, a local artist from your region or a famous one born in your city) or pictures kept in the museums of your country. I'll appreciate any of your choice but as an approximate guideline I'd say that I slightly prefer graphic art to paintings and oil paints to watercolor.
— cards with people in traditional costumes;
— cards with a view on the mountains of your region;
— variations on the Beatles' Abbey Road album cover;
— and the Favorites postcards at this page are the ones that I don't have but would be happy to receive.
I'm not much interested in hand-made cards.
But actually feel free to send any card you find beautiful! Each card that I receive is dear to me.
If that doesn't inconvenience you, please put your card into an envelope so it doesn't get much damaged on the way and I can unglue the stamps (writing the card is alright!).
Best of luck and happy Postcrossing!
