Alex has studied art since 2007, and watercolors have become an obsession.
Influences and inspirations include such classic master artists as J.M.W. Turner, Andrew Wyeth, John Singer Sargent, Whistler, Homer, and more. Contemporary masters who are much admired include Thomas Schaller, Roger Whitlock, Roycroft, Lovett, Josepth Zbukvic, and others. The list could be long, indeed, as there is so much talent out there.
Alex was born in New York City but grew up in DC. She was a research scientist (mathematician, actually) for over 40 years (specializing in Ocean Acoustics over the past 30 plus years). Her art does not seem to reflect this past life at all. Perhaps a good thing...
Alex is an award winning watercolorist and a member of the McLean Project of the Arts (MPA), the Art League of Alexandria, the Maryland Federation of Art Society (MFA), the Yellow Barn Studio, the McLean Art Society (MAS), the Washington Project for the Arts (WPA), and the American Watercolor Society (AWS).
Alex is married to photographer Ron Colbroth who is a constant source of enthusiasm, creativity, and encouragement.
Alex's work is in private collections and has been or will be seen in the Foundry Gallery, The Torpedo Factory (Art League of Alexandria), the Circle Gallery (Annapolis, MD), the McLean Project of the Arts, and various other locations in the DC area. Her work is now also at the US embassy in Barbados.
