My ma tells the story well….

As she’s lying in the bathtub 8-months pregnant she began to see outlined feet coming from the inside.
I was kicking and screaming even before I Ieft the womb, and not a thing has changed.

My name is Alyssa.
Raised in the heart of the Midwest, I am deeply influenced by the symbolism of each changing season.

Reflective in nature, my art is grounded in the quiet subtleties of the day-to-day.
I believe the most meaningful moments tend to be the simplest,
each struggle has a silver lining
and the more love you give, the more love you find.

Innocent to technical form I have dabbled with many mediums,
though have a strong emphasis on coupling photography with writing.

With untethered optimism I believe each and every one of us has a purpose;
our only obligation in life is to share ourselves, shamelessly.

Welcome to my outlet.
