Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Visual Artist

Alissa is a contemporary landscape artist from North Vancouver, Canada. Working primarily in acrylics, she often uses abstract and impressionistic styles in her paintings. She started painting as a child and pursued her passion further by studying at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto and Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver. Through her education, Alissa has developed her own visual and conceptual style, that was then translated through her graphic design works. Currently, she is an artist capturing the beauty of nature in her paintings. She has extensive experience teaching painting and has showcased her artworks in numerous juried group exhibitions across the North Shore and Vancouver. Her works can be found in private collections in Canada, the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, India, South Korea, Sweden, Australia and Italy.

Artist Statement

Alissa captures the placidity of the West Coast in her semi-abstract works in acrylics. She aims to convey her authentic impressions of the places, rather than depicting a representational or a descriptive view of the landscapes. Through her subjective interpretation, Alissa transforms the landscapes into collective fragments using colors, shapes, and textures. She aims at the creation of tranquility in the mind of the onlooker. Through a process of envisioning, painting and contemplating, she consciously intends to convey her impression of the peacefulness of nature.
