Painting in watercolor needs confidence and skill. With other media you can either paint over an image or, as with oils, scrape away the paint and start again. But there are no second chances with watercolor and that is its ultimate frustrating glory and challenge. It’s so much fun when it works. 

Alex has a BA from American University in Washington, DC with a major in printmaking. After starting a family she ran a business producing custom-drawn silkscreened wall clocks. Her clients included the Metropolitan Opera, Lincoln Center in NYC, the National Wildlife Federation, the NY Botanical Gardens, and the Steinhart Aquarium in San Francisco. She then designed fundraising graphics for the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA and for six years was the graphic designer for the Stockton Symphony. She worked for the National Park Service for five years designing informational outdoor exhibits for parks all over the US. After retiring in 2014, she rediscovered watercolor painting in 2018, and fell in love with the quirky medium.
