Alex Tolstoy

About Me

Alex is a watercolorist who went astray. Her paintings usually have a germ of reality but then deteriorate into something blurry and abstract where the viewer supplies most of a missing picture. Animals pop in and out of a mist of lost edges, buildings simplify into get the point. Perhaps Alex’s previous life as a mathematician was an omen of things to come. She just cannot stay within the lines now.

Alex has won awards, had articles published about her work, given demonstrations, and has been in over 150 exhibitions with nearly a dozen solo or semi-solo shows since 2013. She is a also member of numerous societies (both local and national). Things are interesting — rather like the old Chinese curse. But creation is great fun. And why not? Cheaper than a psychiatrist.
