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.
