“Youth is wasted on the young.” No one understands this statement better than someone who has moved beyond the years where they would be considered “young; an ever changing definition that is relative to the one that is reading the statement. I truly did not grow up thinking that I was an artist. I walked through life gathering experiences but not always seeing and appreciating the world around me. Now, during my midlife journey as a photographer I have gone back to looking at the world with a child’s eye. My photographs are inspired by light as I have never seen it before; full of shadows and color and tone that allow me to paint an image or capture an emotion.
Alissa’s work has been featured in New York Newsday, Long Island Travel Guide, Newsday Fun Book, Shutterbug Magazine, the New York Daily News and the Long Island Travel Bureau Tourism Brochure. She has also had several solo gallery and group gallery showings in New York and around the country.
