Sunday Drive by

Colorado artist Alex Alvis was born outside of Chicago and developed an early interest in art.  Her liberal arts education included the study of of drawing, painting and sculpture at Colorado Women’s College, Colorado College, and the University of South Florida.  Despite this formal instruction, many life changes, and through years of independent study and experimentation, Alvis had a major creative breakthrough in 2009 and established her own personal artistic style using a non-traditional sculpting medium for her original work.  Alvis’ dreamlike mood-capturing expressive subjects are infused with realism before they are transformed into brilliantly patinaed limited edition bronze.  Delighting and surprising her viewers with her innovative and distinct approach to color and form, Alvis has become a well-known award winning artist and has many faithful collectors Internationally and in the United States.
