Alyssa's work is born from places and memories that hold lasting impressions. She blends pyrography (wood burning) with painting in an attempt to express these inspirations. When she wood burns, all of her senses are engaged and come together to make the experience incredibly satisfying.  Then, painting breathes vibrant, colorful life into these wood burned outlines.  This dichotomy of "fire" and "water" has allowed her to communicate her perspective in what she hopes is a truly unique manner.

Born in Boston, Alyssa now lives and works in Wimberley, TX.  She earned her MS in Occupational Therapy from Tufts University in Boston.
