Elexia De La Parra

Elexia de la Parra is the founder and owner of Casa Artelexia and Artelexia, retail shops located in San Diego that specialize in handcrafted Mexican gifts, art, and home décor. Elexia nurtured what began as a small farmers’ market stand in 2008 to what is today two retail locations known for their unique Mexican imports, creative cultural workshops, and lively community events.

Most recently she launched Eat.Drink.Cook.Mexico, a tour company that specializes in cultural and culinary tours to Oaxaca and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Groups are limited in size so that participants get a taste of local culture as they visit the hottest restaurants in town, take private cooking classes, and interact with some of the region’s most renowned artisans, cooks, and chefs.
