Alessandra Lanot is a watercolor painter of prints and patters, a maker of handmade watercolor tools, and a creative consultant. Life After Breakfast is where she documents her craft experiments, favorite tools, design process, and workshops, all of which begin after the most important (and her favorite) meal of the day.
Inspired by local culture, travel, and Philippine florals, Alessa’s design process begins with delicate watercolored illustrations. She collaborates with brands, and transforms her artworks into prints on paper, fabric, wallpaper, accessories and apparel.

For many years now, Alessa has been encouraging creativity by teaching watercolor workshops, with over 40 classes per year in various cities–Manila, around the Philippines, and in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Hong Kong, London, and New York.
To support these workshops, she has created Life After Breakfast handmade materials tools, which are thoughtful, eco-friendly, and travel-sized watercolors, brushes, and ceramic palettes, to fit the needs of modern day creatives.
Alessa is also a creative consultant for DTI Go Lokal!, Crazy About Paper, Woven.ph, and is a partner and mentor at Make Space Today. She teaches creative business workshops such as Pricing & Packaging Creative Services, Understanding Your Product & Customer, and Goal-Setting & Strength-Finding. Together with her husband PJ and the Pino group, Alessa also co-owns Pipino, a Filipino vegan restaurant in Quezon City.
