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 was honored as one of Watercolor Artist Magazine's 2014 "Ones to Watch," and is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society.  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.

In this workshop Alexis will focus on painting the humble, ordinary subject.  So often we feel like we have to find the picture-perfect subject before we can begin to paint.  But sometimes a fabulous subject is right at our feet, or in a corner of our home, overlooked and forgotten.  Let’s explore some modest subjects and see how we can turn them into extraordinary paintings – with the right combination of solid drawing, creative design, good painting technique, imagination, humor, and fun!  Painters in all media are welcome.   Daily demos and critiques and ample student painting time.
