Life's journey is often full of unexpected twists and turns and sometimes we walk through darkness before finding the light and finding physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing once again. Sunflowers are a symbol for happiness, optimism, loyalty and devotion.
The center of our sunflower has a heart to symbolize love which is the highest vibrational healing energy one can carry with them. Inside the heart, if you look closely, you will see abstract and subtle semi-colons that make up the seeds. The semi-colon signifies our commitment to promoting mental health and well-being and the mind-body connection. And at the center of it all, is the donkey symbolizing the healing energy that donkeys can bring to every life they touch.
At the young age of 24, Alyssa brings a rich pallet of life experience and creative flair to her creations. Born in Illinois, USA, it wasn't until she moved to Germany that her journey as an artist began. It was in middle school when she first picked up graphite and charcoal pencils and at the age of 19, she had her artwork featured at an exhibit in Wolfersheim, Germany. In a recent interview, Alyssa shares that "throughout the years my style has changed as I’ve grown. Recently I've started experimenting with graphic design. I find enjoyment in creating images visually pleasing to both myself and others. It has been an honor working on this project that has so much meaning behind it."
Alyssa finds inspiration through the emotions she experiences when studying the works of other artists or when listening to music. It inspires her to create her own life's legacy through original artwork and sharing her creations with the public. "I hope when I'm no longer around, I'll not be forgotten and be remembered through my art."
When not working on a project, Alyssa stays busy studying for the EA to further her career in the tax department where she currently works full time as a certified book keeper. What little free time she does have, she enjoys going to car shows, getting together with her closest friends for a girls night out, or curling up with a good book and a glass of wine in the company of her cats.
