Alyse’s work focuses on the delicate beauty of the relationship between growth and decay, viewing death symbolically as an awe inspiring process of rebirth. She loves to explore the ethereal and play with the surreal with roots in classical realism.

She was always drawn to painting because it is such a meditative process that allows the subconscious mind to meld seamlessly with the movement of the paintbrush. Each brushstroke carefully grasps at the ethereal nature of light finding its relationship with the shadow, finding the balance of warm and cool colors, and relating soft and hard edges. With each mark a bridge is formed in pigment, connecting this inner world of thought and emotion to the outer world, inviting the viewer inside.

She is from Baltimore, Maryland. She travels the country painting and showing work at music and art festivals as well as showing at galleries. She is currently working out of New Orleans, Louisiana.
