About Alyssa

Alyssa’s sensibility of paint and color allows one to be seduced into the illusion of each image. Striving for anatomical and realistic accuracy, it is her intention to elicit a serious confrontation. The work requires attention to detail and a slow and rich execution. It is this artist’s concern to visually relate the contemporary human experience with sensitivity, empathy, and integrity.

I like the way she uses realism to convey melancholic feelings.

Any aspiring artist could learn from this woman's work.
Calling her pieces inspirational is like calling a nuclear bomb disagreeable.
Alyssa rocks!

Innocence, vulnerability. As a man a nude woman catches your attention, as soon as this photo has your attention, it says so much more.
