Alissa Millsap, born of a carpenter, has dreaming and creating in her blood. She is a light chaser, a seeker of the small, and a lover of silence. An artist since childhood, she sought after learning new ways of creating, whether by college classes or more recently online courses. One would most find her exploring the back country roads or in her studio creating a sculpture or a painting of the views she has been inspired by. She lives on the prairies of Nebraska with her farmer husband, their funny and creative daughter, and their dog Harley.
From the Artist:
Sometimes I think I was born with a pencil in my hand. Drawing was a way for me to communicate what I was feeling. Later, while studying interior design, I fell in love with how color can be used to evoke emotions. Painting in acrylics is a way for me to represent a subject in an impressionistic style, while drawing allows me more control in adding details. By putting them together it grants me the freedom to express a story I want to tell. With the addition of vintage papers and excerpts of my found poetry written on my pieces, the story becomes complete. The subjects I paint come from living as a farmer’s wife and as a child of God. Patience, hope and beauty are the life lessons that I have learned from these experiences and I continue to develop them through my work.
