About the Artist
Alyssa finds most comfort in structure and understanding its intricacies. The plans for the week, the schedule of a day, or the beads on a string. Each are composed and communicated with a high degree of consideration and never with randomness or chance. When Alyssa, who happens to be visually impaired, inspects the beads she intends on using in any given project she carefully inspects the feel and shape both her her fingers and the skin on her face. Every strand of beads is a careful composition in and of itself.
