Alyssa has a bachelor degree in Fine Arts, majoring in Visual Design and Communication, from St Scholastica's College in Manila.
Working digitally in Photoshop, Alyssa’s favourites include the Brush and Pen tools, for establishing her line work. After drawing and painting digitally, she loves layering in natural textures to give her work a real world and traditional feel.
Many of Alyssa’s images immediately make you think of children’s illustration, an area she excels in, although her style also suites editorial, fashion and publishing clients. Vibrant, fun, light-hearted and whimsical are all words that spring to mind. There are elements of nature in everything she does, and some of her more conceptual images also range towards surrealism.
