Alexis believes in the power of design so strongly that she recently gave up her decades-long devotion to plein air painting to devote herself to studio work, where she could take more time to design her very best paintings!  Teaching is one of the most important things she does. She loves to share her passion for art by guiding others to reach their creative goals, and she teaches with enthusiasm, commitment, passion, humor, and kindness.  She has taught watercolor for over two decades, from California to the Caribbean. She has seamlessly adapted her classes to the Zoom platform and believes that her online workshops are as good as, and in many ways better, than in person classes.  Honored as one of Watercolor Artist Magazine’s “Ones to Watch,” she is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society, Watercolor Honor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and others. Her paintings reside in collections throughout the country and overseas, and they can be found in galleries from the Mid-Atlantic to the Virgin Islands.

Education is tremendously important to Alexis. She earned two bachelor’s degrees and a master’s degree, before embarking on her path as a painter. She continues to study art whenever possible, as well as teaching painting and drawing classes and workshops. She loves to speak about art, share her experience and knowledge, and help her students achieve greater success.
