I am an artist currently located in Durham, NC. I grew up in New York City and graduated from Wellesley College with a BA in Studio Art & from the School of Visual Arts with an MFA in Computer Art. Since graduating, I have worked in every level of production from Technical Support to Animation Direction. My focus has been in creating entertaining all-ages content in addition to continuously exploring new techniques, mediums, and formats. I am also dedicated to infusing my work with commentary on social issues like feminism, diverse representation in media, and diversity in creative communities.

I am available for freelance and other work.

Alyssa created animated characters for a series of education videos. She was fantastic to work with, turning around sample characters in a short period. Based on descriptions of character personalities, she came up with different creative poses that really captured their essence and provided versatile options for our project.
