Alexandra Bloch grew up in New York and discovered her talent and passion for painting and drawing as a child, studying later with established artists including David Schorr at Wesleyan University; Robert Neffson, Dan Gheno, Sharon Sprung, and Sherry Camhy at the Art Students League of New York; and Stephen Early and Lea Colie Wight from Studio Incamminati.

Alexandra uses a clean and sparing style to create realistic and naturalistic images of figures and forms existing in everyday life. Mindful of life’s chaos, she makes fresh and simple imagery offering the viewer a retreat for the eye and spirit. Often Alexandra’s figures and still lifes are contemplative glimpses of a simple scene rather than a wide view of a jumbled world. Her work has been shown in juried and invitational exhibitions around the country winning several awards including First Place in Women’s Works 2015 at the Northwest Area Arts Council in Woodstock, Illinois.

Before moving to North Carolina where she currently resides, Alexandra lived in New York City, Seattle, Washington, DC, Kiev, Berlin, and Grenoble.
