Illustration Design & Craft



Hi, I am Alyssa - the born and bred New Yorker living down under in Tassie! I studied illustration and animation at the Fashion Institute of Technology for undergraduate and graduate courses. As an illustrator and art teacher for students aged 5-75+, I strive to put the KA-POW into stories and learning. My illustrations can be found in several books including the Lucia The Luchadora series and the Amelia Chamelia series. I currently reside in stunning Hobart, Australia where adventures await each day. Stay tuned for more books and news in 2019 including Singing Nana and Goodnight 70s.

Illustrations by Alyssa Bermudez add a bright cheeriness to the story that feels like it’s destined for a TV cartoon.
