Welcome to my site!
My name is Alyssa and I am 24 years young.

Born and raised in Massillon, Ohio
with my parents and brother, Alex.
Now, I live and work in Cleveland, Ohio.

I recently took a job at
Greater Cleveland Community Shares
as their Campaign and Membership Manager!
In short, I help with workplace giving campaigns to strenghten fundriaising for 43 local nonprofits. 

I am currently pursuing a Master's Degree in
Arts Administration at the University of Akron.
I also am a Visual Art Instructor at
the Beck Center For the Arts in Lakewood, Ohio.

My Bachelor's degree is from
Bowling Green State University in
Two Dimensional Studies and Arts Management. 

Being a Freelance Artist will always be a part of my life in addition to my career as an Arts Administrator.

For a few years, I taught Pilates/Yoga. I was also a college cheerleader. I think you will find that fitness makes a frequent appearance in my painting practice. 

When I'm not doing art or working, you'll find me by the lake fishing! I love Jesus and a big ol' cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee!

In my BLOG , I write about some random advice and things that I hope will help other artists/mid twenties people like me  :)

Thank you for visiting! Hope to be hearing from you!

Q: What mediums do you use? 

A: I use a wide variety of painting and drawing mediums.

Resin, watercolor, oil, encaustic to name a few. 

Q:The most common question asked: What is your "price"? 

Material cost  +  time spent  +  size  +  shipping  =  price

Q: How do you handle deliveries?

A:  Willing to deliver in person or schedule a meeting point
to avoid shipping costs if the trip is reasonable

Q: Where is your "purchase" tab? 

A: At this moment, I decided to remove my Etsy and PayPal options
for purchasing originals and prints so I can focus on my commissions for the year.
When I have more time after graduate school,
I will most likely make the pages live again :)

Q: Where else can I find your work?

A: Keep a look out at coffee shops and galleries
in Cleveland where some of my work may appear.

A: If you're interested in a particular piece or want a print,
I would be happy to speak with you over email.

Q: What methods of payment do you use?

A: I prefer to use Venmo.
Other payment options can also be discussed. 

Q: Do any of my proceeds go to charity? How much? How will I know?

A: For certain pieces or series, I will donate a portion to charity!
It varies, but I will always send a confirmation email
showing the amount donated.
