Alissa is a sculptor, designer, extended media artist, and recent Masters in Fine Arts graduate from the University of Arizona. In 2012, she attended Savannah College of Art and Design where she received her Bachelors in Fine Arts in Graphic Design. Her work has been exhibited internationally in Hong Kong and Italy, and nationally in group shows such as Deteriorating Preservation, and Human as Object, in Tucson, Arizona, and All or Nothing, in Cincinnati, Ohio. She has also been published in Applied Arts Magazine in 2012 and Manifest Exhibition Annual in 2016.
Her work is tied to the body as medium, countercultures, and understanding human emotions and visceral disgust. Psychological connections are made within these areas as she meticulously documents the everyday. Along with her own body, she is interested in the connections individuals have with one another and how distance can play a major role in relationships and one’s overall state of being.
