Hello! My name is Alissa Apel.

I got my bachelors degree at Kansas City Art Institute, with a focus on Illustration and Design. At Savannah College of Art and Design I earned my master's degree with the emphasis on Illustration.

Different materials are incorporated into mixed media paintings for my current works. Design impacts my life daily. It is important to look at things from different perspectives, so taking photos and blogging inspires me to push forward.

I write and create step by step art techniques for kids on This is a great way for me to develop new techniques, and explore a variety of man made and natural objects.

I teach Drawing, Color and Design Theory, Art Media Techniques, Illustration, Design and Layout, and Portfolio Development.
