Santa Barbara born and Ventura raised, Alyssa is an emerging Asian American artist from Ventura Avenue who strives to understand her eastern roots in Buddhism and her western perspective as a Christian to get through the motions of day-to-day life.
She always had a creative side and began to focus more on painting in 2013. During her college studies, she explored other crafts like screen printing and ceramics, but she would always return to a room filled with paintings and works in progress no matter how busy her daily twenty-something life got.
Alyssa is continually working on expanding her portfolio and worldview while appreciating the big little things. She is currently working on a series of oil paintings called that illustrate her wonder for greater things, and she has a vegan food blog called @partyinmyrice .
